Nicotine pouches are regulated under The General Product Safety Regulations 2005. During the Post Implementation Review of The Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016, we received submissions to further regulate these products under this framework. We will keep this under review in the development of the forthcoming health disparities white paper and Tobacco Control Plan.
