Electronic cigarettes and/or refill containers

The sale of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and/or refill containers requires a notification. The notification must be made no later than the start of sales. No fee is charged for notification of the sale of e-cigarettes or refill containers.

Self-monitoring program

Anyone selling tobacco, e-cigarettes and refill containers or other nicotine products is required by law to ensure that the point of sale has a self-monitoring program adapted to the business. We recommend that you have a joint self-monitoring program for the different product categories above if you sell several of them. The self-monitoring program should contain information on the point of sale's procedures for sales. The procedures should ensure that the business complies with laws and other requirements for sales.

Supervision and fees

There is no fee for the notification of e-cigarettes and/or refill containers. However, you will receive an annual fee for the supervision of sales. The fee will vary depending on what other tobacco products you sell.
