Estonia: The Ministry of Social Affairs has drawn up a bill to amend the Tobacco Act, introducting a definition for heated tobacco, equating heated tobacco use with smoking, and establishing a flavour ban and mandatory health warning for heated tobacco in line with the EU’s Commission Delegated Directive 2022/2100. The bill has not yet been introduced in Parliament.

Estonia: The Board of Health, the Ministry of Social Affairs and the World Health Organization (WHO) are among bodies that have submitted comments on the Tobacco Act Amendment Bill. The WHO and the Health Board do not support the bill, saying it would weaken the current regulatory framework. The Ministry of Social Affairs welcomes the regulation of nicotine pouches but suggests a broader regulation of non-tobacco nicotine products, and like the other two bodies rejects the proposals on distance selling and point-of-sale display. The first reading of the bill is scheduled for 15th November.
