Malaysian manufacturers of e-liquids are now required to adhere to new labelling guidelines. At present, the guidelines apply only to non-nicotine e-liquids – but there are high hopes they may represent the first step towards wider regulation of the vapour industry.
Malaysia Vape Hub’s chief operating officer Fadzil Shah told ECigIntelligence: “Many traders are starting to sell e-liquids and get into the vape business, but it is becoming a little haphazard, like selling goods at a pasar malam [night market].
“Brewers are selling the e-liquids for cheap and are into all sorts of marketing gimmicks, and that is because there are no clear regulations. It is messy.”
