This statement reviews the latest science concerning one of the newest classes of products to enter the tobacco product landscape – electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), also called electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) – and provides an overview on design, operations, constituents, toxicology, safety, user profiles, public health, youth access, impact as a cessation aid, and second-hand exposure. On the basis of the current evidence, the authors provide policy recommendations in key areas of tobacco control such as clean indoor air laws, taxation, regulation, preventing youth access, marketing and advertising to youth, counselling for cessation, surveillance, and defining e-cigarettes in state laws.
