GENEVA (Reuters) - China, the world's biggest tobacco producer and consumer, has drawn up standards for regulating e-cigarettes, it said in a filing published by the World Trade Organization on Wednesday, without specifying any date for adoption of the rules.

"This standard specifies the terms and definitions, technical requirements, test methods, packaging, identification, instructions, storage and transportation of electronic cigarette," the filing said.

The technical standards were set out in a 68-page attachment in Chinese, available at https://members.wto.org/crnattachments/2019/TBT/CHN/19_2560_00_x.pdf
