Iceland regulates e-cigs for the first time

Iceland passed a new law to specifically regulate and potentially tax e-cigarettes for the first time at a legislative session held last week.

Under the law, which governs both nicotine and nicotine-free e-cigarettes and e-liquids, e-cigarettes can legally be sold in Iceland but not advertised. Previously e-cigarettes containing nicotine had to be granted a pharmaceutical licence to be legally sold in the country – and no such licence had yet been issued.

The state will also take a percentage of gross e-cigarette product sales, which it will donate to the Public Health Fund.
