The fight for reasonable e-cigarette regulations in Norway starts NOW!

The Norwegian Ministry of Health and Care services are, according to Norsk Dampselskap (Norwegian union of Vapers), working on a draft for new e-cigarette regulations and this draft will be sent out for consultation to relevant institutions and organizations, SIRUS (Norwegian Institute of Drug and Alcohol research) being one of them of course. Hopefully Norsk Dampselskap will also be on the list. It will also be possible for individuals to speak their mind. Exactly when this draft will be ready is not known yet but research director at SIRUS, Karl Erik Lund, writes in an email that they expect to be given some pointers about the direction this work is heading soon, and maybe also know more about how the ministry will follow up on the EU TPD. He still expects it will be a while until we know the details in the draft though. 

As Norway is not a member state of the EU the situation here is slightly different than in the member states. Most such EU directives are implemented due to the EEA, but it is possible for Norway to make reservations regarding the parts that concern electronic cigarettes. This is probably what the next battle of the e-cigarettes here in Norway will be about. For this to happen, the Norwegian government must be convinced that there are considerable gains in public health by making such reservations, and the best way to make this happen is to educate. Again, the knowledge and the stories of the vapers is of enormous value in this matter.

Norsk Dampselskap is currently working hard to recruit as many members as possible to gather more strength, as they will of course be very active in this debate. And the more members they have the heavier their arguments will be so I urge all Norwegian vapers and e-cigarette supporters to support NDS by becoming a member.
