Finnish working group puts the case for tougher restrictions on nicotine products

Raising the minimum purchasing age to 20, restrictions on imports, and further extensions of vape-free environments are all under consideration in Finland

 made by a working group appointed by the Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health to look into the regulation of novel tobacco and nicotine products.

The working group proposed that the age limit for purchasing tobacco products, nicotine liquids and nicotine-containing tobacco substitutes should be raised from 18 to 20 and that the same limit would also apply to importing, possessing, carrying or passing them on. The number of duty-free tobacco products that could be imported from outside the EU would be reduced.
