France: heated tobacco regulation, July 2022

The French regulatory framework for heated tobacco is expected to remain unchanged in the near future. French president Emmanuel Macron’s agenda does not foresee any policy regarding heated tobacco products. Additionally, the 2022 legislative elections for the National Assembly did not grant a ruling majority to the re-elected president, making any policy approval that much more difficult.

A flavour ban and new packaging requirements may be introduced in 2023 as a result of a delegated directive, adopted by the European Commission, amending the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD).

This report offers a detailed overview of the regulatory framework in place for heated tobacco in France, covering both current and possible future restrictions across all policy areas, including taxation, notification, advertising and more.
