Slovakia: heated tobacco regulation, September 2023

Heated tobacco is largely regulated in Slovakia as a tobacco product, and a bill to introduce a flavour ban is being considered in the parliament. Herbal heated products are not specifically regulated.

Heated tobacco products are regulated by the Act on Production, Labelling and Sale of Tobacco and other related products of May 2015 (amended in 2019), which has transposed the TPD into the Slovak regime. This legislation takes a stringent approach to heated tobacco, making it equivalent to conventional tobacco products in respect to retail, advertising and public usage.

This report provides a detailed analysis of the regulatory framework in Slovakia for heated tobacco and herbal heated products, covering all policy areas currently in place.
