New law banning the sale of e-cigarettes to under 18s in Ireland set to take effect before Christmas, says Health Minister.

According to a report on FM104 news website, the Irish Minister of Health has confirmed that regulations prohibiting the sale of e-cigarettes to individuals under the age of 18 will come into effect before Christmas.


British American Tobacco (BAT) Ireland has called for stricter regulation of e-cigarettes with candy, dessert, and soft drink flavors. The company believes that this will make the e-cigarette industry more responsible.


In November last year, lawmakers voted in favor of banning the sale of e-cigarette products to minors. This legislation was subsequently approved by the Senate and signed into law by President Michael D. Higgin. Currently, this law is awaiting the orders to commence enforcement.


In an interview, Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly stated that these regulations are “of great importance” and will be implemented “soon”.
