On November 27, the Chinese government website reported that the State Council issued a decision on amending the “Regulations for the Implementation of the Tobacco Monopoly Law of the People’s Republic of China” (hereinafter referred to as the “Regulations”). Such new tobacco products shall be implemented with reference to the relevant regulations on cigarettes in these Regulations.”
This means that the entire e-cigarette industry in China is officially included in the tobacco regulatory system, and there will be laws to follow for the future development of the industry. For companies engaged in e-cigarettes and related industries. For a long time, “the sword hanging over their head has finally landed aside.” The legal status of e-cigarettes has allowed the companies in the industry to clarify their future development direction.
As far as VAPE HK is concerned, it’s time to say goodbye to the vape industry if the new tobacco products including vapes and heat-not-burn products follow the relevant regulations on cigarettes strictly in China. Luckily, the revised law says referring to the cigarette law, not according to. So there will be a large space for the vape industry to survive until some fatal regulation or law is rolled out. Not this time.
