Hungary to introduce fees for e-cigarettes

As another step in further regulating the market, the Hungarian government is foreseen to levy many new fees on retailers and sellers of electronic cigarettes from November, Hungarian news agency MTI reported today, based on a decree published in the latest issue of the official gazette Magyar Közlöny.

An administration fee of HUF 475,000 on sellers of e-cigarettes will be introduced, along with a separate fee businesses will be required to pay for every brand and strength of nicotine and nicotine-free e-cigarette as well as refill cartridges they sell, according to the decree.

Additionally, businesses will be forced to pay a HUF 306,000 fee, per item, for any modifications to the range of products they sell.

Revenue from the fees will go to the National Institute of Pharmacy and Nutrition (OGYEI), according to MTI.
