Some facts about the vaping sector in the Netherlands

The vaping industry is not a big industry in the Netherlands, with ECigIntelligence estimating for 2021 that around 180,000 people vape.

The Netherlands was the first country in the European Union to begin readjusting regulation in line with the EU’s Tobacco Products Directive (TPD). It is now facing an overhaul of its anti-smoking legislation with a National Prevention Agreement (Nationaal Preventieakkoord) (NPA). The NPA is a set of agreements prepared by health secretary Paul Blokhuis in cooperation with Dutch public health organisations, educational institutions and municipalities, which set high-level goals for future legislation in tobacco control. The rules are to be implemented progressively, with the aim of achieving a “smoke-free generation” by 2040.
