The UAE is laying down regulations for e-cigarettes which may ease the ban on the sale of the product in the country. In January this year, authorities from Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology (Esma) sent a draft technical regulation to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) notifying them of the country’s intention to regulate the sale of e-cigarettes.
The document that was sent to the WTO and a copy of which is with Khaleej Times states that the objective of the regulation is to protect human health by ensuring that quality products are available in the market.
