The current situation for oral tobacco products, except chewing tobacco, in North Macedonia will remain unchanged for the foreseeable future, given the firm consensus across Europe. Tobacco-free pouches are likely to be regulated only following the revision of the European Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) and its later adoption by North Macedonia.
This report provides a detailed overview of the current regulatory framework for nicotine pouches and oral tobacco in North Macedonia, covering all policy areas from taxation and notification to advertising and packaging requirements.
