Regulatory Framework for E-Cigarettes in the EU
09:30 - 09:45
From 2016 onwards the Tobacco Products Directive introduced regulations for e-cigarettes which provide a consistent regulatory framework across the whole of the EU, with 28 member states and a population of over 500 million. This session will explain how the regulatory framework establishes a notification system for consumer products which has allowed the independent e-cigarette sector to continue to flourish, with the option left open to apply for more stringent medicines licensing. It will go on to explain how the regulatory system in the UK, while conforming to the EU rules, is embedded within a strategy for driving down smoking prevalence which is the most advanced in Europe and what the implications of that have been. It will also point out the differences between the EU and the US systems, and what the implications of these differences are.
