China bans synthetic nicotine, while new e-cig standard could affect global market

Synthetic nicotine, and nicotine-free e-liquids, will be banned in China from 1st October, when the country’s standard for e-cigarettes takes effect. And that is likely to have a significant impact on the global availability of certain products, given China’s status as the world’s leading e-cig exporter, and the fact that e-cigarettes for export will be subject to the same rules as those intended for the domestic Chinese market.
The national standard, published in April, also defines important vaping industry terminology, and specifies requirements for product design, use of materials and chemicals.
