Sales of electronic cigarettes remain prohibited in Belgium.
The Council of State refused the request from two retail sellers to reverse the prohibition.

Electronic cigarette sales are strictly controlled in Belgium, with the authorities in particular fearing that they encourage youngsters to smoke. The tobacco sector considers that these cigarettes are a healthier alternative for smokers. In the end, the Council of State has now followed the line of the authorities by maintaining the Internet sales prohibition.
