Italy vape store survey: uncertainty growing but stores still optimistic

The last quarter of 2017 has been marked by numerous developments in the Italian regulatory framework starting with the decision of the Constitutional Court confirming the tax on nicotine-containing products as the same as for those containing no nicotine, followed by the approval of the Budget Law (Legge di Bilancio) that has introduced the online sales ban of liquids with and without nicotine and the introduction of a store authorisation system by the AAMS (Customs and Monopolies Agency).

The Customs and Monopolies Agency will set up the rules by the end of March 2018.
