Vape and heated tobacco bill approved in the Philippines

A ban on importing and using vaping products in the Philippines is due to be reversed as the Joint House Committees have approved a bill on vaping product regulations. If passed into law, the ‘Non-Combustible Nicotine Delivery System Regulation Act of 2020’ will set out guidelines on vaping product import and production, will set out a minimum age for use and will mandate printed health warnings on vaping product packaging, similar to those used for cigarettes.
