Date added: 10/09/2013 The European Parliament adopt new anti-smoking bill, another win for EPUFFER and E-Cigarette industry
European lawmakers approved a long-fought and divisive anti-smoking bill aimed at making cigarettes less attractive to youngsters but threw out a bid to curb sales of increasingly popular e-cigarettes.
The more relaxed route will make the e-cigarettes easier to purchase, which many actually consider a healthy move. Equipped with a battery; an atomiser; a cartridge of nicotine; and a water-based solution, e-cigarettes vaporize nicotine so that people can get their fix without the tobacco and additives found in traditional cigarettes. E-cigarettes are primarily popular among those trying to quit smoking — though some are concerned that popularity among teenagers is rising.
E-cigarettes, which are booming worldwide, will therefore continue to be available in tobacco shops or specialist stores, but will be banned for sale to minors. Elsewhere, legislators also put new limits on the advertising of electronic cigarettes, but have rejected European Commission proposals calling for them to be regarded as medicines, like nicotine patches or gum. E-cigarettes are free to be marketed as a consumer product, but not as an aid to help people quit smoking, under the proposals.
Although nicotine is definitely addictive, Cancer Research UK says that it's the tobacco and additive cocktail that poses the true danger to long-term smokers (not to mention, the smoke). E-cigarettes, they claim, are "almost certainly" much safer. Independent studies also indicate that switching from traditional cigarettes to e-cigarettes helps smokers lay off smoking for good.
However, e-cigarettes will be subject to the same restrictions on purchase and advertising that cigarettes currently are. Sales to those under 18 will be prohibited, and there are tight restrictions on sponsorship.
The proposals also include a ban on words such as “low tar”, “mild” and “light” on tobacco packs. Slim cigarettes, however, escaped a ban.
The group of MEPs from 28 nations also voted to increase the current minimum requirement for health warnings on cigarette packaging, from 30 per cent on one side and 40 per cent on the other, to 65 per cent on each side of packs.
While this is an increase, the decision will be welcomed by the tobacco industry as the European Commission had proposed graphic health warnings should cover 75 per cent of cigarette packets.
Packaging must also be big enough so the health warnings are clearly visible, the Commission says, which means cigarettes should come in packets of at least 20. The UK and Italian minimum is currently 10 cigarettes per pack.
The law, which still must win approval from the 28 European Union states, will force tobacco firms to print large health warnings covering 65 percent of the packaging, with the name of the brand printed at the bottom.
That was less than the 75 percent originally proposed by the European Commission.
But in a considerable watering down of the proposals, "slims" will remain on the market and menthol cigarettes will only be banned eight years after the law comes into effect.
The aim of the new legislation is to cut the number of smokers across the 500-million bloc "by two percent in the next five years," the EU's Health Commissioner Toni Borg said as he urged MEPs to be "daring" and support the plan.
Last Friday, health ministers from 16 of the 28 European Union states issued an appeal for a swift adoption of the law. It was supposed to go before parliament in September but was delayed on the request of the conservative, liberal and euro-sceptic groups.
The legislation will not come into effect before 2017.
The proposed new rules on labelling, ingredients and smokeless products also fell short of demands by some health campaigners for a total ban on company branding and logos on packets, along the lines of measures enforced in Australia.
Borg said on introducing the proposals that with 70 percent of smokers starting before the age of 18, the ambition was "to make tobacco products and smoking less attractive and thus discourage tobacco initiation among young people." Almost 700,000 Europeans die from tobacco-related illnesses each year -- equal to the population of Frankfurt or Palermo -- with associated health costs running at more than 25 billion euros.
