Royal Decree amending the Royal Decree of 28 October 2016 on the manufacture and bringing into circulation of electronic cigarettes
The draft Royal Decree is intended to keep electronic cigarettes in the form of whole disposable products off the market.
The ban now appears in an additional Section in Article 4 of the Royal Decree of 28 October 2016 on the manufacture and bringing into circulation of electronic cigarettes.
In addition to the ban, the text now gives a definition of ‘electronic cigarette in the form of a whole disposable product’, to clarify which products do and do not fall under the ban.
The ban on the marketing of disposable e-cigarettes would be subject to a transitional period to allow the sale of banned products that are already present on the market.
