Are e-cigarettes legal in Malaysia? The Malaysian e-cigarette market is also a very large market. Before, Malaysia did not have any control over e-cigarettes, which was a relatively chaotic state. At present, Malaysia also has some regulatory measures for e-cigarettes, mainly tax collection and product certification. Block, let Foryouvape chat with you about the e-cigarette policy in Malaysia.
Are e-cigarettes legal in Malaysia? Analysis of Malaysia’s Electronic Cigarette Policy
E-cigarettes are legal in Malaysia, and the latest regulation is that e-cigarette products containing nicotine will be subject to excise tax, that is, e-cigarette equipment is a 10% excise tax, while e-liquid containing nicotine is a GST of RM1.2 per ml. In addition, All e-cigarette products are also subject to a 10% sales tax.
However, at present, there is no merchant or company in the Malaysian market to report the e-cigarette tax. All the prices are exactly the same as last year, and there is no change at all. A 30ml can of e-liquid will add a tax of RM36 (about 54RMB), which will bring a great blow to consumers and business operators.
Why is no one filing taxes? The reason is very simple, that is, because the authorities have not made arrests, and the entire system has great loopholes, until the end of April this year, no merchants in the market took the initiative to take the first step.
Malaysian electronic cigarettes also have a quality certification MALAYSIA SIRIM or SIRIM, which is referred to as MS in Malaysia. Therefore, all hosts, including Disposable Devices, must register for this certification.
Among them, the battery must have IEC 62133:2017, the charging port must have IEC 60950-1 certification, and the charger must have IEC60950-1 / IEC62381
Therefore, if you want to enter the Malaysian market now, you should pay attention to finding products from manufacturers that meet the above certifications. If you sell products without certification, there will be a maximum penalty of RM500,000 (about 750,000 RMB).
The above are some of the contents of the e-cigarette policy in Malaysia. Although Malaysia currently levies taxes on e-cigarettes and conducts SIRIM certification, mainly this SIRIM certification, if there is no certified product, it cannot be sold, because the manufacturer does not dare to sell it. It will be fined, so those who want to market e-cigarettes in Malaysia should pay attention to the information of SIRIM certification.
