E-cigarettes and other tobacco alternatives are making it tougher for regulators and those who administer tobacco laws to do their jobs, the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) says in a new report.

Vaping and heat-not-burn (HnB) face scrutiny this week at the WHO FCTC’s eighth Conference of the Parties (COP8) in Geneva as they grow in popularity around the world.

“An increasing number of Parties indicated that the arrival of new and emerging tobacco products…was a growing challenge for both regulators and enforcers of tobacco regulations,” says the 2018 Global Progress Report on Implementation of the WHO FCTC, presented in Geneva today, the first day of COP8.
