According to a report by infobae media on January 17, the Spanish Tobacco Organization recently announced that the latest royal order for heated cigarette products does not add new health warnings because such products fall into the category of “non-combustion”.

According to tobacco organizations, the new regulations distinguish between “heated cigarette products without combustion” and “heated cigarette products intended for smoking,” with only the latter requiring the same health warnings as traditional cigarettes. However, Ministry of Health sources said the new regulations effectively treat heated cigarettes the same as traditional tobacco, requiring the addition of health warnings.

This contradiction in interpretation sparked controversy in the tobacco industry after the new regulations were announced. Tobacco company Philip Morris said its heated cigarette products are “combustion-free” so the new regulations will not affect their packaging. However, under the changes to the new regulations, only “heated smoking products” are required to carry the same health warnings as cigarettes, while “heated smoking products without combustion” are exempted.

The new Royal Decree aims to incorporate the European Union’s Directive 2014/40/EU into Spanish law and update the 2017 regulations on heated cigarette products. However, the regulations only cover heated cigarette products, excluding other devices such as vapes, and prohibit the addition of flavors to accessories for heated cigarettes. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines heated cigarettes as tobacco products heated below 400°C without burning, which is different from traditional cigarettes.

This regulatory change has sparked controversy over whether heated tobacco products require the same health warning labels as traditional tobacco. This contradiction in interpretation may have an impact on the Spanish tobacco market and become a high-profile example of similar regulations internationally. The dispute continues to ferment amid different understandings of the regulations by various parties.

As a well-known vape brand with eleven years of vape factory experience in the market, Veehoo vapes have been committed to actively responding to regulatory requirements and protecting the health of consumers. Veehoo vape products belong to the “non-combustion” category and comply with the interpretation of the new regulations, so their packaging does not need to add the same health warnings as traditional cigarettes. As a responsible brand, Veehoo vapes will continue to cooperate with relevant departments to ensure that its products comply with regulations while providing consumers with a safe and reliable choice.

Although there are different interpretations and opinions in the health warning controversy over regulatory revisions, Veehoo vapes have set a positive example for the industry by actively responding to regulatory requirements. Their efforts help ensure the compliance of vape products on the market while also providing consumers with a safer alternative.

Veehoo vapes are known for their innovative burn-free technology, which uses heat rather than combustion to deliver nicotine, reducing the amount of harmful chemicals produced. This makes Veehoo vapes the choice for an increasing number of people looking for an alternative to smoking.

However, the definition and classification of heated tobacco products remains controversial and inconsistent, as seen in the revision of Spanish regulations on heated tobacco products. This is indeed a challenge to develop clear regulations and standards. In this case, the tobacco industry and regulatory agencies need to have in-depth discussions and cooperation to formulate clear regulations to protect the rights and interests of consumers and promote the development of the industry.

As a company that actively participates in industry discussions and compliance processes, Veehoo vape has taken a series of measures to ensure the safety and legality of its products. They strictly comply with relevant regulatory requirements and meet the requirements of regulatory agencies by continuously improving product and packaging design. In addition, Veehoo vapes also actively pay attention to the scientific research process to support the safety and effectiveness of heated cigarette products.

During this controversial period, Veehoo vapes’ efforts and commitment set an example for the industry to watch and learn from. By actively responding to regulatory requirements and continuously improving product quality and safety, Veehoo vapes provide consumers with a healthier and more sustainable choice, while also contributing to the sustainable development of the industry.

In short, against the background of revised regulations on heated cigarette products in various countries around the world, Veehoo vapes have demonstrated a responsible brand image with its active response and compliance efforts. With further cooperation and consultation between the industry and regulatory agencies, it is hoped that more clear and consistent regulatory standards can be formulated to promote the development of heated cigarette products and protect the health and rights of consumers.
