In our latest look at Chinese regulations, we can see that it is clear the sale of international brands of heated tobacco devices are not allowed as no foreign company has been permitted to sell their devices. If found on the market, it is mostly likely to be a smuggled product and the seller will be at risk of criminal proceedings.
