Ecuador: heated tobacco regulation, November 2023

Heated tobacco products are not specifically addressed in the Law on the Regulation and Control of Tobacco or the Tobacco Control Regulation. However, they must comply with both regulations given that the definition of tobacco products includes cigarettes, cigars, tobacco, cut tobacco, hookah or water pipes, leaf extracts, and other products of similar use, prepared wholly or in part using tobacco as raw material and intended to be smoked, inhaled, sucked, chewed or used, such as snuff.

This report provides analysis of the current regulatory framework in place in Ecuador for heated tobacco products, covering all policy areas.
