The House of Representatives Committee of Trade and Industry has approved a bill regulating the manufacture, sale, and distribution of vapes, e-cigarettes, and other electronic nicotine and non-nicotine delivery systems.

Committee chair and Valenzuela 1st District Rep. Wes Gatchalian said the committee approved the measure, which is expected to curb the illegal selling of vapes and e-cigarettes and other heated tobacco products to minors.

He said, based on the committee estimates, there were about 800 backyard stores.

Under the proposed measure, only those aged 18 years old and above shall be allowed to purchase, sell, and use such products. Flavors that lure minors shall also be limited.

Retailers, including online sales, will be mandated to verify the age of buyers using valid IDs with photograph and date of birth.

The electric devices used in vapes and e-cigarettes will be regulated by the Department of Trade and Industry and to ensure that they comply with electrical safety standards.
