Belgium: heated tobacco regulation, June 2023

Heated tobacco products are currently not available on the Belgian market, but they would have to comply with tobacco regulation when eventually approved.

Internet sales of heated tobacco consumables and devices are banned.

A bill aimed at amending the framework for heated tobacco products seeks to withdraw certain exemptions, and introduce a flavour ban as well as notification, packaging and labelling requirements for the devices.

Currently, heated herbal products are not regulated, but the aforementioned bill aims to change that. The regulation will be in place by the end of 2023.

This report provides a detailed analysis of the current regulatory framework in place in Belgium for heated tobacco and herbal heated products, covering all policy areas currently in place and looking at possible future changes.
