Vaping regulation in Australia


The current regulatory framework for e-cigarettes is shared between the federal government and the states and territories, and may also apply to therapeutic goods, poisons and consumer goods.

The most significant change in regulation this year in Australia is the entry into force of the new Poisons Standard, which will make it harder for Australians to access e-cigarettes.

This report provides an overview of the current regulatory framework in place for vaping products, covering both national and state level.
