The Tobacco Act provides measures to prevent people from taking up the use of tobacco products, promote quitting their use and protect the population against exposure to tobacco smoke.

 

Sale of tobacco products

The retail sale of tobacco products is subject to a permit. Tobacco products may only be sold by a business that has a retail permit granted by the municipality in which the place that sells the products is located.

A sales permit application can be submitted electronically or with a written permit application. We recommend that you submit the application electronically. The sales permit application must be submitted well in advance before the start of operations.

The municipality charges a fee for granting the permit and for sales control according to its approved rates.
