Hungary: heated tobacco regulation, September 2023

Heated tobacco products are considered new smokeless tobacco products in Hungary. Herbal heated sticks are subject to notification and labelling requirements.

We do not expect significant changes to the regulatory framework for heated tobacco products (HTPs). Prior to the regulation of herbal heated sticks, the public debate was more focused on these products than HTPs. However, following their regulation, the public and political debate has since been silent. A draft decree seeking to further regulate herbal heated sticks is being discussed, and it is likely to pass in the near future.

This report offers a detailed analysis of the current regulatory framework in place for heated tobacco products and herbal heated products in Hungary, covering all policy areas.
