The Control of Smoking Products for Public Health Bill 2023 successfully passed when the majority of Parliament voted in its favour last month.

This marked two significant firsts: the first time there is a standalone Bill that covers all aspects of tobacco control (previously, the Food Act was predominantly used for tobacco control matters) and the first time we have a mechanism to regulate electronic cigarettes/vaping products.
