All you need to know about E-cigarettes & vaping devises trading in Dubai
Dubai Government under the Dubai Economic development (DED) has introduced a new activity called “Electronic cigarettes & accessories trading” under “Tobacco and Smoking accessories trading” group. This activity would be registered in the Dubai mainland and will allow the investors to legally have the E cigarettes trading in the local market.
It is a commercial activity which includes reselling electronic cigarettes which are electronic devices that work by heating a liquid called e-juice which generates vapor that is inhaled by the user. The e-juice may or may not contain nicotine. E-cigarette is intended to stimulate the experience of smoking cigarettes and narghiles and may help users to quit smoking.
Until now, it was not legal to sell e-cigarettes in Dubai. But from mid-April 2019, selling of E-cigarettes & vaping devices will be allowed in Dubai. The product approval will be governed by Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA). This move will ensure testing of ingredients and restrict utilizing banned substances. Thus, it will protect public’s health & safety.
This move will also discourage the purchase of unregulated products available widely online. Under this new regulation, it will cover all standard electronic nicotine products, which are used as an alternative to traditional cigarettes such as electronic shisha, electronic cigarettes, electronic pipes, vaping devices & liquid refills.
Now, all manufacturers, wholesalers & retailers of these battery powered products will have to approve their products from ESMA.
The location of the shop/office is to be pre-approved by Dubai Municipality, following certain rules.
E-cigarettes will also carry health warnings.
