Electronic smoking devices – HS Code 8543.70
Consultation Regulations Tobacco and Electronic Smoking Device Sales and Access Act Regulations Amendment) (2 page(s), in English)
Preventing initiation of electronic smoking device use by youth is recognized as one of the most effective means of reducing lifetime nicotine addiction and its associated health hazards. Measures are therefore being proposed to prohibit the sales of electronic smoking devices that contain certain flavouring agents to reduce their appeal to youths.
Section 3.1 of the Tobacco and Electronic Smoking Device Sales and Access Act prohibits the sale of an electronic smoking device that contains a prescribed flavouring agent. The proposed regulatory amendment will prohibit the sale of electronic smoking devices that contain an agent which produces an aroma or taste other than the aroma or taste of tobacco, including the aroma or taste of candy, chocolate, fruit, a spice, an herb, an alcoholic beverage, vanilla or menthol.
