The bill bans the advertising of tobacco products, electronic cigarettes, including vape and heated tobacco devices, smokeless tobacco substitutes and nicotine sachets for oral use.

Explicit advertising of these products is banned on radio, TV, on public transport tickets, in publications aimed primarily at minors and in venues where events are organised for children under 18. The same ban is applied inside educational and healthcare establishments.

Gigel Stirbu, PNL MEP, initiator of the bill: This legislative initiative was prompted by the desire of some families who have underage children to have a legislative framework to ban advertising for these gadgets, for these smoking and tobacco heating devices. A nation, in order to have a future, must have healthy, vigorous and educated young people.

The measures should have been adopted long ago, says USR.

Adrian Wiener, MEP: Many more steps need to be taken. Cigarettes will probably have to be taken out of the general commercial circuit, where they are generously displayed, being the equivalent of an obvious advertisement at all cash registers, in petrol stations, in all shopping malls and in all supermarkets.

The new rules come after parliament passed a law in March banning the sale of these products to minors.
