『Vape Trends』TPD Revision: There May be Delays Due to Covid-19


ECigIntelligence has just reported that while some of the research work may be delayed due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the EC is continuing work on the revision of the current EU TPD as planned.

“The Scientific Committees on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER) is preparing an evidence report on the risks associated with the existing regulatory framework for vaping products in terms of nicotine concentration and limits,” read an article by ECigIntelligence.

“The research conclusions should be delivered to the Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG-SANTE) by October, but officials in Brussels have admitted to ECigIntelligence that “delays may occur in view of COVID-19 limitations.”

 

EU health commissioner wants harsher tobacco rules

 

While public health experts point out that the TPD makes it harder for smokers to quit, the EU health commissioner says he wants to strengthen tobacco regulations, based on a report showing how the TPD works in practice.Meanwhile, despite numerous reports indicating that the TPD is counterproductive to smoking cessation, last year, Health Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis, said that the next European Commission will propose strengthening tobacco regulations, based on a report showing how the TPD works in practice.

“I can organise a guide to an oncological department to see what they are doing because they’ve never been there. The industry never understood the suffering of people. Especially, if you have cancer patients in front of you,” said Andriukaitis in explaining why he believes tobacco regulations should be harsher. The problem with this statement is that the commissioner insists on viewing smoking and vaping and their respective industries as one and the same.

“We have two issues: one is to collect information about electronic cigarettes but also different novel tobacco products. They will have a lot of work to do. They need to show how the TPD works in reality and explore possibilities to improve it,” said Andriukaitis about compiling the report which would support the TPD.

 


Vapesourcing Opinion:

There is no doubt that the electronic cigarettes is the healthier replacement than traditional tobacco product. So if youre a long-term smoker, vaping is worth a try for health.
