The law firm Keller and Heckman LLP, through its Shanghai office, is inviting stakeholders to join a new working group dedicated to the development of appropriate e-cigarette product standards and regulations in China.
In China, there are currently no laws or regulations targeting e-cigarettes. However, this may soon change. Recently, during the 16th World Conference on Tobacco or Health in Abu Dhabi, UAE, a representative of the Chinese National Health and Family Planning Commission made it clear that Chinese authorities are planning to develop e-cigarette regulations, given the huge potential of the Chinese e-cigarette market and the various public-health and safety issues related to the use of e-cigarettes.
When authorities start to consider the regulation of e-cigarettes, they will likely solicit input from industry stakeholders. Thus, Keller and Heckman believes now is the best time to create a working group of e-cigarette and e-liquid companies and other interested stakeholders who want to engage in the regulatory process.
Those interested in learning more and joining the working group can do so on the Keller and Heckman website. If you have any questions, please contact David Ettinger (email@example.com) or Azim Chowdhury (firstname.lastname@example.org).
