Policy Summary: 

The Pharmacist Regulations (Conditions for Manufacturing, Importing and Marketing of Electronic Cigarettes, Cartridge and Fillers) 1972-2019 prohibits the manufacture, importation and sale of e-cigarettes with nicotine concentration exceeding 20mg/mL. It also requires e-liquid cartridges to possess a child safety mechanism.

The law on Prohibition of Advertising and Restriction of Marketing of Tobacco and Smoking Products includes e-cigarettes under the definition for smoking products, and therefore prohibits sale of e-cigarettes to minors under 18 years, as well as use in public places where smoking is banned. E-cigarette advertising, promotion and sponsorship is prohibited. The warning, "אזהרה - מוצר זה ממכר ביותר ומזיק לבריאותך" (“Warning—this product is highly addictive and damaging to your health”) should be positioned at the top of each of the two largest surfaces of the pack and cover 30% of each surface. Provisions banning the use of figures, plants or fruits on packaging are effective as of June 2019, while the plain packaging provision takes effect January 2020.
