Nicotine products

In addition to pharmacies and comparable establishments, nicotine products may be sold at retail stores selling cigarettes, at kiosks and petrol stations, and at eating establishments with a retail licence that must be applied for prior to commencing business. Additionally, a notification must be made regarding the discontinuing of sales or changes in the number of sales outlets.

The website of the Finnish Medicines Agency (Fimea) has a list of sales points with a municipal licence for retail sale of nicotine products.
