As we reported before, the EU Commission published a survey on taxing tobacco products in November 2016. Among all tobacco-related topics this survey also focused on the question of whether vape products in the EU should be subject to taxation, and if so, how they should be introduced.
Additionally to the standardized questions which allow only a variety of positive assessments, the Commission also offers the possibility to submit a freely drafted text with an opinion at the very end of the survey.
We would like to introduce IG-ED’s opinion to you which you find in the following PDF:
The survey runs out on 16th February, 2017. If you haven’t done so already, we would urge you and everybody else to add your opinion. Please make your voices be heard, time is running out!
