A healthy, tobacco-free world

Electronic Smoking Devices (ESDs) Resource Hub

One stop resource for ESDs

Across the ASEAN region, ESDs are gaining popularity, especially among the youth.  It is imperative to take action and unmask the truth behind ESDs and their harms. Click to explore our ESD Resource Hub.

Regulatory Status of ESDs in the ASEAN

Currently, 47 jurisdictions, including Brunei, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Singapore, and Thailand, have banned the manufacture, importation, promotion, distribution, and sale of ESDs. Countries, that have not banned or could not ban ESDs, should implement the following restrictive measures. Many of these measures are applicable to all tobacco products.
