The Policy Radar provides in-depth analyses of policies surrounding e-cigarettes, heated tobacco and nicotine pouches, as well as predictions of changes in major policy areas: advertising, promotion and sponsorship, taxation, sales channels limitations, product restrictions and market access. Tamarind Intelligence also provides a complementary report with key findings from the Policy Radar.

The current version is up to date to 28th September 2022.

The following sections of the Policy Radar give a comprehensive overview of the political climate in each country as well as the laws, bills, elections and stakeholders that impact their novel tobacco sectors, and the likelihood of changes in policy and regulation.

Political climate summary: An overview of the general political stance each country currently holds towards novel tobacco products, summarised as positive, moderate or negative. A map is provided to visualise these political climates, and the summary table can be filtered by countries and regions.

Policy scorecard: In-house analysis of the major policy areas (advertising, promotion and sponsorship, taxation, sales channels limitations, product restrictions and market access) was used to score each country in each policy area, based on the stringency of legal frameworks for e-cigarettes, heated tobacco and nicotine pouches. The total current and future scores for each country can be visualised in the two maps, with scores shown as a percentage of the total possible score. (The higher the percentage, the more heavy restrictions are; the total possible score equates to a complete ban.)

Below the maps, the policy scorecard also shows the breakdown of each policy area in each country in graphical form, illustrating how stringently the products are regulated (low, medium, high or banned).

Bills and policy: This filterable and easy-to-use table shows proposed bills and policies that may affect the novel tobacco industry in general; certain sectors of the industry; or specific product types (for example, nicotine-containing products only).

Tamarind Intelligence has assessed the impact these proposed measures would have on the sector, and the likelihood of them being implemented. We also provide key dates and links, enabling you to stay ahead of potential changes.

Election monitor: The election monitor tracks upcoming elections in each country that may impact regulation of the novel tobacco industry in general. As with the political climate summary, this analysis takes into account current governments’ views on novel tobacco regulations, the likelihood the government may change, the winning chances of parties in upcoming elections, and the impact that a new government could have on the industry.

Stakeholders: Here we list stakeholders such as medical organisations, NGOs and agencies, providing insights into their positions on the sectors and the actions they are taking.
