The Ministry of Health is seeking views on a number of regulatory proposals that will provide the operational detail to help achieve the intent of the new provisions of the Act.

That intent is to:

• better support smokers to switch to regulated products that are less harmful than smoking

• protect tamariki, young people and non-smokers from the risks associated with vaping and smokeless tobacco products.
