Australia’s health regulator confirms ban on heated tobacco products

Australia’s health regulator has confirmed a ban on heated tobacco products (HTPs). The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) announced the formal decision, rejecting claims that HTPs offer a safer alternative to smoking. The TGA said that maintaining the current scheduling for HTPs was necessary to protect the public against the potential harms from recreational use of nicotine replacement products.
