Brazilian E-cigarette Public Consultation: over 13,000 Suggestions Received
Brazil's health regulatory agency, Anvisa, received over 13,000 suggestions during a public consultation on e-cigarettes, sparking debates on regulation.

Recently, according to South American media Estadao, the Brazilian National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) has concluded the public consultation on e-cigarettes. Data shows that during the online discussion period, the agency received over 13,000 suggestions from various sources.


Brazil currently has laws that prohibit all manufacturing, sales, importation, and promotion activities related to Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS). However, a public consultation is aimed at gathering opinions from the general public, academics, businesses, and any other relevant parties. This public consultation has also attracted 92 suggestions from foreign countries, with the majority coming from Canada and the United States, both of which have established regulations on e-cigarette sales.


In addition, Anvisa's Director-General Antonio Barra Torres has convened internal personnel to begin revising current regulations on e-cigarettes. Meanwhile, the bill 5008/2022 proposed by Congresswoman Soraya Thronicke is sparking debate within Congress. The bill aims to introduce new prohibitions on e-cigarette products, including banning the production of e-cigarettes with candy or dessert-related flavors, as well as packaging that is appealing to children and adolescents.


According to the statistical organization Ipec's data for 2023, there are currently 6 million adult smokers who have tried e-cigarettes, with 2.2 million of them already regularly using these e-cigarette products. This reflects the social discussions sparked by the public consultation, and these suggestions from the public will have a significant impact on Brazil's e-cigarette regulations.
