To support and comply with the government's mandate on e-cigarette policies, RELX International, a manufacturer of electronic cigarettes, has declared that, effective May 25, 2022, its shops will no longer carry flavored vape products.

In accordance with Republic Act (RA) 11467 and Joint Memorandum Circular (JMC) No. 003-2020, the government prohibits the manufacturing, importation, sale, and distribution of vapor products with flavors other than plain tobacco or plain menthol.

RA 11467, which was approved by President Rodrigo Duterte on January 22, 2020, aims to increase the excise tax rates on alcohol, heated tobacco, and vape goods in order to create revenue for the government to provide quality and affordable health care. In contrast, JMC 003-2020 prohibits flavoring vapor items other than tobacco and menthol.

The move reflects the company’s commitment to support important reforms that will benefit the collection of tax revenues, cater to legal-age adult smokers, protect access of e-cigarette among minors and ensure responsible and standard-compliant e-cigarettes in retail points across the country.

Across its operations, RELX complies with governments and works with its partners to deliver quality products to legal age adult smokers through its state-of-the-art products and industry-leading technologies advanced by its talented and committed people.
