    China’s State Tobacco Monopoly Administration (STMA) plans to limit the number of vapor products a person can carry on them, reports The Global Times.

    According to a notice published Nov. 23, a person can possess a maximum of six “smoking devices,” 90 e-cigarette cartridges and 180 mL of e-liquid.

    On the same day, the STMA and the State Post Bureau jointly announced restrictions on the delivery of vapor products. Each shipment may contain a maximum of two “sets,” six cartridges and 12 mL of e-liquid.

    Each recipient is allowed to accept delivery of no more than one shipment of vapor products per day.

    In April, China’s tobacco regulator approved mandatory national standards for e-cigarettes that came into effect in October.
