Regulatory report: Belgium, October 2021

A royal decree of 28th October 2016, transposing the European Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) into national law, ended the classification of e-cigarettes in Belgium as medical devices. The product-specific regulation includes severe restrictions in many regulatory areas.

There are currently three bills that aim to change the legal framework of e-cigarettes in Belgium. Two of them have already been introduced into the parliament, which aim to equate nicotine-free vapour products with the nicotine-containing ones, introduce plain packaging, and impose a flavour ban. The third has been notified to the EU Commission TRIS Database and aims to rewrite many articles of the royal decree that regulates e-cigarettes.

This report covers all current and possible future regulation for e-cigs in Belgium.
