South Korea’s proposed regulation to subject e-cigarettes made with synthetic nicotine to tobacco laws faces opposition.

According to news from the South Korean National Assembly on the 22nd, a proposal that synthetic nicotine, used as a raw material for e-cigarettes, should be regulated under the Tobacco Business Act as regular tobacco, despite opposition from the Ministry of Strategy and Finance, might be abandoned. The National Assembly’s Finance Committee held an economic and financial subcommittee meeting on the 21st and expanded the range of tobacco raw materials, including natural nicotine such as stems and roots, which were previously excluded. Additionally, synthetic nicotine made from chemicals was excluded. They plan to meet again on the 23rd to confirm these details.
