Philippines to introduce draft rules for electronic fogging products soon
On August 11, local time, the Philippine Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) reportedly said it is working on draft rules and regulations for the implementation of the Electronic Fogging Products Regulatory Act.
According to the Manila Bulletin, DTI Undersecretary for Consumer Protection Organizations Ruth Castelo said at the Laging Handa public briefing, "Since DTI is designated as the implementing government agency, they will have to comply with the law."
Castelo said, "Within the next few days, we will begin consultations with the Food and Drug Administration and then a public consultation." He noted that under the law, they must produce an internal audit report by the deadline. The law, which takes effect on July 25, 2022, requires DTI to file an IRR within three months of its effective date.
The Electronic Atomization Products Regulatory Act governs and regulates the importation, manufacture, sale, packaging, distribution, use and communication of nicotine and non-nicotine products and new tobacco products. Under the law, manufacturers have three months to notify the DTI before placing new nicotine products on the market.
