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.

Luxembourg abides by the https://gsthr.org/global-data/eu-tpd" target="_blank">EU TPD (2014). E-cigarettes that contain nicotine and those that are nicotine free are regulated by the Law of 13 June 2017 amending the amended law of 11 August 2006 on tobacco control. Vaping is prohibited wherever smoking is prohibited such as public places where children are, in public buildings, and on public transportation, as well as in vehicles where there is a child under 12. Warnings on packaging have to be in French, German and Luxembourgish. E-cigarette advertising is banned everywhere except at point of sale, and cross-border sales are illegal. There is no excise tax on e-liquid.

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.
