e-Cigarette rules safeguard users’ health

The passage of the Vaporized Nicotine and Non-Nicotine Products Regulation Act or Republic Act 11900 is welcome news for the e-Cigarette industry to safeguard users’ health and all stakeholders said RELX International.

RA 11900 lapsed into law on 25 July 2022, and is the first comprehensive law to regulate the importation, manufacture, sale, packaging, distribution, use, and communication of vapor and heated tobacco products.

“With this important legislation, the vapor product industry will be properly regulated, benefiting adult smokers looking to switch to better alternatives while keeping the product out of the hands of underaged users,” said Sally Goh, General Manager, RELX International Philippines.

Under the new law, the Department of Trade and Industry is given the authority to regulate the vaporized nicotine and non-nicotine products and their devices and novel tobacco products being sold online or in physical outlets.
