The Framework Convention Alliance for Tobacco Control

FCA Policy Briefing for COP7: Electronic nicotine delivery systems and electronic non-nicotine delivery systems

Key recommendations

  • Recognising that current evidence on the potential risks and harms of ENDS/ENNDS is inconclusive and Parties have divergent views on their potential role in tobacco control, we urge the COP not to engage in lengthy debate on this topic;
  • Parties should note the non-exhaustive list of options provided in the WHO report, which they might consider in order to achieve the ENDS/ENNDS objectives set out in the COP6 decision (FCTC/COP6(9));
  • Parties should request the WHO to prepare an expert report for COP8 with an update on scientific evidence and on national regulatory developments.
