Regulatory report: Latvia – HnB, oral tobacco and nicotine pouches, February 2022

If you are interested in the regulatory regimes concerning heated tobacco and  other tobacco products in Latvia, this updated report is for you.

Since Latvia transposed the EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) in 2016, it has submitted new regulations and is currently working to implement further changes. A proposed flavour ban for nicotine pouches is currently promoted by one ministry but opposed by another.

Overall, the government is trying to create a regulatory framework similar to that of its neighbours Estonia and Lithuania. This report details, with links to many original documents, the current regulations in place, including usage, age restrictions, ingredients, notifications, advertising, health warnings, taxation and sanctions, as well as possible future amendments.
