E-cigarettes in Public Transport to be Banned in Switzerland

Nov 13th 2013, 12:37

From December 15 the use of the battery-powered devices that simulate smoking by heating and vaporising a liquid solution containing nicotine will incur a 25 Swiss franc (20 euro, $27) fine, a spokesman for Public Transportation Union told the Swiss news agency ATS.

The regulation against smoking tobacco on public transport was extended to electronic cigarettes due to the difficulty of inspectors to distinguish between cigarettes and e-cigarettes.

Swiss regulations do not allow the sale of electronic cigarettes, but their use in the country is tolerated and the federal public health agency has noted an increase in their use.

There are currently no regulations in Switzerland governing their use in restaurants.

Some 250 scientists, experts, policymakers and industry figures gathered in Britain on Tuesday to discuss the health and public health issues surrounding e-cigarettes, which many argue are much less harmful than smoking tobacco.
