Internet sales of heated-tobacco devices will shortly be banned in Belgium, where selling e-cigarettes online has been illegal since 2016.
Heated-tobacco consumables are already mostly covered by the existing ban on distance sales of tobacco products.
The extension of the prohibition to novel tobacco products including heat-not-burn (HnB) devices will come through a
royal decree amending the decree of 5th February 2016.
It will not require parliamentary debate, but will be sent to the Advisory Board of State to be signed by the ministers for health, the economy and small and medium-sized businesses.
