The regulatory policies of the e-cigarette industry are getting closer and closer.

On March 11, the State Tobacco Monopoly Administration announced that it had formed a national standard for "electronic cigarettes" (the second draft for comment) and solicited opinions from the public, and the opinion draft made clear provisions on atomization: the characteristic flavor of the product should not be made to show other flavors other than tobacco.

On the same day, the State Tobacco Monopoly Administration also issued the "Administrative Measures for Electronic Cigarettes" (hereinafter referred to as the "Measures"), which includes cigarette bombs, smoking equipment and products sold in combination with cigarette bombs and smoking utensils, which will be implemented from May 1, 2022.

Or affected by the above news, the parent company of e-cigarette brand Yueke, Wuxin Technology (RLX), the US stock plunged 20% before the market.

  The e-cigarette flavor is clearly tobacco-only

Previously, according to the standard revision plan of the National Standardization Administration, the State Tobacco Monopoly Administration organized the completion of the national standard (draft for comments) of "Electronic Cigarettes", solicited the opinions of relevant ministries and commissions of the state, relevant enterprises and other parties, and solicited opinions from November 2021 to January 2022. On the basis of fully absorbing the opinions of all parties, the project team has made modifications and improvements.

In the newly issued opinion draft, the terms and definitions of e-cigarettes, e-cigarette design and raw materials, technical requirements, test methods, logos and accompanying documents are stipulated, which apply to e-cigarettes and e-cigarette components, and do not apply to other tobacco products.

Among them, "e-cigarette" is defined as an electronic delivery system (excluding cigarettes) used to produce aerosols for human suction, etc. "Nebulizer" is defined as a mixture and auxiliary substance that can be atomized into an inhalable aerosol in whole or in part by an electronic device.

It is worth noting that in this standard, there are new provisions for atomization: it is mentioned that it should not induce minors, and the characteristic flavor of the product should not be made to show other flavors other than tobacco. At present, the mainstream brand e-cigarettes that can be bought on the market generally have a variety of flavors such as fruit, lactic acid bacteria, and mint. The new regulations may have a greater impact on the sales of e-cigarettes.

Last year, the National Standard for Electronic Cigarettes (Draft for Comments) organized by the State Tobacco Monopoly Administration mentioned that "products should not be made to present inducing characteristic flavors for minors", but no clear definition was given. In the national standard of "e-cigarette" (second draft for comment) released today, the taste of e-cigarettes is limited to "tobacco taste".

The details of the substances listed in the annex table for the temporary licensing of nebulized additives have also changed, from 122 items announced last year to 101 items, and the substances used are mainly flavoring additives, including: plum extract, rose oil, bergamot oil, orange oil, sweet orange oil, etc.

  Tobacco IPO is required to be reported to the competent authorities

According to the "Measures", the establishment of e-cigarette production enterprises (including product production, agency processing, brand holding enterprises, etc., the same below), atomization production enterprises and electronic cigarette nicotine production enterprises, etc. must be approved by the competent administrative department for tobacco monopoly under the State Council, obtain a tobacco monopoly production enterprise license, and approved and registered by the market supervision and management department; the initial public offering of shares and listing of the above-mentioned enterprises shall be reported to the competent administrative department for tobacco monopoly under the State Council for review and approval.

It is worth noting that the surging news reporter inquired about the administrative measures for e-cigarettes issued last year (draft for comments) and found that the content of the initial public offering and listing of tobacco companies is a new clause. At the same time, in the final measures, it is emphasized to strengthen the publicity and education of the health hazards of smoking e-cigarettes, discourage young people from smoking e-cigarettes, and prohibit primary and secondary school students from smoking e-cigarettes.

At the same time, the competent administrative department for tobacco monopoly under the State Council shall establish a unified national e-cigarette trading management platform. E-cigarette production enterprises, atomized production enterprises, e-cigarette nicotin production enterprises, e-cigarette wholesale enterprises, and e-cigarette retail business entities that have obtained tobacco monopoly licenses in accordance with law shall conduct transactions through the e-cigarette trading management platform. E-cigarette products that have not passed the technical review shall not be sold on the market. The information of e-cigarette products sold on the market and the product information that has passed the technical review shall be consistent.

For the introduction of the "Measures" and the new opinion draft, the e-cigarette brand YOOZ Yuzu responded to the surging news reporter that as a practitioner of the e-cigarette industry, it firmly supports the implementation of the "E-cigarette Management Measures". We will actively implement the relevant requirements in the announcement and make compliance adjustments based on the announcement rules. Continue to practice social responsibility and strive to contribute to the long-term and healthy development of the industry.
