Mexico: two potential paths to e-cig legalisation

Regulatory reports

The sale of e-cigarette products is banned in Mexico under the General Tobacco Control Law, although a modest e-cigarette market does exist. In 2015 Mexico’s highest court unanimously held that the regulator’s interpretation of Mexico’s Tobacco Control law is in violation of the constitution. For this interpretation to apply at a general level, legalising commercialisation of e-cigarettes, five judgements following the same criteria are needed. A bill from 27th April 2017 amending the General Health Law is being considered in the current legislature to legalise and regulate vapour products. It would introduce registry obligations, as well as product, labelling and packaging restrictions.
