Belgium: e-cigarette regulation, May 2023

Belgium legalised e-cigarettes in 2016. Online sales of all vapour products are prohibited, and starting at the end of 2023, vending machine sales will be banned. Starting this summer, nicotine-free vapour products will have to be notified and comply with product, labelling and packaging restrictions. A vapour tax might be introduced in 2024, but Belgium could also wait for the outcomes of the European Tobacco Excise Directive review.

This report provides a detailed overview of the regulatory framework currently in place in Belgium for e-cigarettes, covering all policy areas from product and packaging restrictions, to advertising and taxation.
