China brings e-cigarettes under the national Tobacco Monopoly Law

Li Keqiang, premier of the State Council of China, the country’s chief administrative authority, has approved the addition of a new article to the Tobacco Monopoly Law, clarifying what has been a grey area surrounding the regulation and categorisation of e-cigarettes.

The amendment equalises e-cigarettes and novel tobacco products with traditional tobacco. The added Article 65 states simply: “E-cigarettes and other new tobacco products shall be implemented with reference to the relevant regulations on cigarettes in these regulations.”
