Weeding and tobacco heating systems will fall under the single anti-smoking law. The government decided that they would not be introduced a separate law.
The issue of regulation of the market for paper bags, electronic cigarettes and other devices for alternative smoking was discussed on Tuesday, June 19, at a meeting with the participation of two vice-premiers, Dmitry Kozak and Tatyana Golikova.
Vice-premiers decided not to introduce separate regulation for alternative devices: they should be within the framework of the current legislation, in particular the federal law, which is considered to be the main one for the tobacco industry (” On protection of the health of citizens from exposure to ambient tobacco smoke and consequences of tobacco consumption “). .
This decision is absolutely correct and consistent with modern scientific data and international requirements.
Tobacco products belong to excisable goods , which are supervised by First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov.
