Each country profile draws together some of the key statistics and regulatory information for each country in relation to smoking tobacco and safer nicotine products.

A 2011 ruling from the Government in Argentina bans the sale, advertisement, distribution and importation of e-cigarettes and related products. Decree no. 602/2013 also classifies e-cigarettes as tobacco products, therefore using them is prohibited in enclosed public spaces and public transport by the national tobacco control law (no. 26,687).

Notes on methodology & limitations

Data has been collected from a range of sources which are openly available online, such as vaping information/regulation websites & direct from country's legislation where available. In a few instances information has been included which was received from individuals specialising in the field. The regulatory picture changes frequently and these tables show the situation at time of going to press. This website will be updated as/when new regulatory information is received. There are gaps in the data available - readers are invited to send in updated information to the GSTHR team.
