Nova Scotia has approved a new regulatory cap on e-liquids and cigarettes making it the first province to adopt a maximum nicotine concentration of 20 milligrams per millilitre.

An order in council signed last week amends the province's Tobacco Access Act regulations and takes effect Sept. 1.

The move follows an amendment passed in March that banned flavoured vaping products. The Canadian Cancer Society says Nova Scotia's maximum nicotine level is the same standard that has been in place in the 28-country European Union for some years.
