The Icelandic government passed a law in 2018 to specifically regulate e-cigarettes, for which there was no previous regulation in the country. Though Iceland is not a member of the European Union, the regulatory framework essentially mirrors the EU’s Tobacco Products Directive (TPD).

The Icelandic legal landscape on vapour products has remained unchanged since 2019, when a ministerial regulation entered into force to establish further requirements for the labelling and packaging of e-cigarettes. However, the regulatory framework of flavourings in vapour products may change significantly in the upcoming months, as a new bill to restrict the marketing of flavoured e-cigarettes is under consideration. This shows that some Icelandic lawmakers are increasingly perceiving vapour products as problematic and so it is possible that there could be more restrictions to be under consideration.
