The French regulatory framework for e-cigarettes has not undergone any major change recently, and none is currently in process or in the pipeline. There is no debate or law proposal on the table.

Nevertheless, there is an ongoing controversy as to whether e-cigarettes should be viewed as smoking cessation treatments or products similar to tobacco products. It is possible that the government will introduce regulation to clarify the actual role of e-cigarettes, although the end of president Emmanuel Macron’s term of office is less than a year away and other health priorities are likely to come first.

This report details the regulatory framework for e-cigarette products in France, including age, product, packaging and advertising restrictions, public usage, notification requirements, taxation and sanctions.
