Oral tobacco products or snus are banned under The Tobacco and Related Product Regulations 2016.

The Department is currently undertaking a post implementation review of the Regulations which will consider if they have met their objectives or if any future regulatory changes should be considered. The report of the review will be published by the end of the year.
