This document relates to item ­­­4.4.2 of the provisional agenda for the Sixth Session of the Conference of the Parties to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, 13-18 October 2014, Moscow

 

Key Recommendations

 

  • Parties should take careful note of the WHO report to COP on ENDS.
  • Because of differences in regulatory systems and national circumstances, it will be difficult to reach consensus at COP6 on specific regulatory approaches to ENDS.
  • Some overarching concerns and principles may be widely shared, and could be noted in a COP decision.
  • Careful monitoring of new evidence and national regulatory experience is essential.
  • An expert report on emerging scientific evidence and lessons learnt from national regulatory experience should be prepared for COP7.
