INNCO Position on Potential Bans of Flavoured Nicotine Vapes


The International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organisations (INNCO) recommends that any national or local government that is considering the imposition of a ‘flavour’ ban on nicotine vapes (“e-cigarettes”) should first conduct a careful health impact assessment to determine how many adult vapers will relapse to smoking, how many fewer smokers will quit, and how many teen vapers may shift to cigarette smoking.
