Starting December 15 smokeless tobacco products will be banned in Singapore
The Ministry of Health in Singapore is banning “emerging” tobacco products including e-cigarettes and e-liquids starting on December 15, 2015.
The ban, with effect from Dec. 15, is adopted to ensure that such products do not gain a foothold or become entrenched in the Singapore market, which could stimulate demand for and increase the prevalence of tobacco consumption, MOH explained.
The first phase of the ban targets emerging tobacco products including smokeless cigars, smokeless cigarillos or smokeless cigarettes, dissolvable tobacco or nicotine, any product containing nicotine or tobacco that may be used topically for application, by implant or injected into any parts of the body as well as any solution or substance, of which tobacco or nicotine is a constituent, that is intended to be used with an electronic nicotine delivery system or a vaporiser.
