E-cigarette regulatory facts in Croatia

E-cigarettes are regulated by the Law on Restriction of Tobacco and Related Products of May 2017, which has transposed the European Union’s Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) into Croatian regime.

This legislation takes a stringent approach to nicotine vapour products, making them equivalent in most respects to tobacco.

The law, however, while defining electronic cigarettes as a product used for the consumption of vapour which contains nicotine and refills as bottles of nicotine-containing liquid, does not make any reference to nicotine-free e-cigarettes, which means those products remain under general consumer safety laws.
