Canada In 2017, Canada amended the Tobacco Act to prohibit the use of menthol in cigarettes, blunt warps and most cigars. In 2015, Canada amended the Tobacco Act to prohibit the use of appealing additives including flavours in additional types of cigars (weighing more than 1.4 g but not more than 6 g and cigars with tipping paper or a wrapper with a straight seam). The amendment was in response to the introduction of new flavoured cigars to the Canadian market. Additives that impart a wine, port, whisky or rum flavours were exempted in certain cigars. On May 31, 2015 Nova Scotia became the first jurisdiction in the world to implement legislation banning the sale of menthol flavoured tobacco as part of a broader flavoured tobacco ban. Many other provinces have since implemented bans on flavoured products. In 2009, Canada amended its Tobacco Act to prohibit the use of additives in cigarettes, little cigars and blunt wraps that contribute to make these products more attractive to youth. The prohibited additives are listed in a Schedule annexed to the Act. This list includes most flavouring preparations, spices, seasonings and herbs, sugars and sweeteners, vitamins and mineral nutrients, fruits and vegetables, essential fatty acids, and other additives. Menthol additives were excluded from the list of prohibited additives. In 2005, Canada enacted the Cigarette Ignition Propensity Regulations, to require all cigarettes manufactured or imported for sale in Canada have reduced their likelihood of igniting upholstered furniture, mattresses and bedding. As per the regulations cigarettes must meet a standard that they must burn their full length no more than 25% of the time when tested using ASTM International method E2187-04; Standard Test Method for Measuring the Ignition Strength of Cigarettes. In 2000, Canada enacted the Tobacco Reporting Regulations that set out the requirements for the reporting of information on the sales, manufacturing processes, ingredients, toxic constituents, toxic emissions of tobacco products sold in Canada, as well as research activities and promotional activities undertaken by tobacco manufacturers and importers.

Netherlands The Netherlands also regulate the content of electronic cigarettes / e-liquids with nicotine. And will regulate this for electronic cigarettes / e-liquids without nicotine The Netherlands asked the European Commission to take action to improve the European Tobacco Products Directive with respect to the measurements of TNCO contents of cigarettes. The ISO method that is currently used underestimates the quantity of harmful substances to which smokers are exposed. There is a better method; the Canadian Intense (CI) method for example provides a more suitable alternative, closer to human smoking behavior and not susceptible to changes in filter ventilation, as the ventilation holes in the filter are taped and inhalation is deeper and more frequent. The Netherlands will also regulate the content of ESN/ENDS. As stated in the EU TPD we will be regulating ingredients of tobacco products in the near future. WHO European Region
