8. Osnovni sadržaj
The Ministry of Health and Care Services proposes several amendments to the Tobacco Control Act in order to implement Directive 2014/40/EU concerning the manufacture, presentation and sale of tobacco and related products. These include cigarettes, roll your own tobacco, pipe tobacco, cigars, cigarillos, smokeless tobacco, electronic cigarettes and herbal products for smoking.

The Tobacco Products Directive covers electronic cigarettes which can contain nicotine.The Ministry of Health and Care Services suggests that the rules regulating electronic cigarettes cover both those with and without nicotine. This means that all electronic cigarettes, regardless of nicotine content, need to be notified with the Norwegian Medecins Agency before they are planned to be placed on the Norwegian market. It also means that the non-nicotine spesific requirements regarding quality, safety, design ect. according to TPD art. 20 will apply to all electronic cigarettes. TPD art. 7 nr. 6 is also applicable for electronic cigarettes with nicotine. The Norwegian Minstry of Health proposes that this provision is also made applicable for all electronic cigarettes, independently of any nicotine content.

Several other amendements to the Tobacco Control Act to implement the Tobacco Products Directive were on public consultation until 18 January 2016. A bill will be presented to Parliament before summer 2016.


9. Kratka izjava o razlozima
As of today there is limited knowledge of the health risks related to the heating and inhalation of the additives found in electronic cigarettes, both with and without nicotine. It is reasonable to assume that the additives found in e-liquide, both with and without nicotine, are the same. The health risk related to the additives is most likely the same independent of any nicotine level in the e-liquid.

The possible health risk conected to additives is also seen in the Tobacco Products Directive when regulating electronic cigarettes with nicotine. The Directive requires manufacturers and importers to report on all the ingredienses, including the quantity, in the e-liquid, cf. TPD. art. 20 nr. 2 letter b. Except for nicotine, it os also a requirement that only ingredienses which do not pose and health risk in heated or unheated form is used, cf. TPD art. 20 nr. 3 letter e.

According to the TPD art. 7 nr. 6 some additives are also prohibited. These prohibited addivies are just as relevant for electronic cigarettes without nicotine as those with nicotine.

Consequently, from a public health perspective the Norwegian Ministry of Health believes it is necessary, suitable and propotional to control and regulate additives in all electronic cigarettes, independent of any nicotin level.
