The 1st of October is proving to be an important date in the Vaping Calendar, with Totally Wicked challenging Article 20 of the Tobacco Products Directive in the European Courts of Justice, while here in the UK, it has become illegal to sell e-cigarettes to anyone under the age of 18 or to buy e-cigarettes for them.
Many Vendors within the e-cigarette Industry have been voluntarily refusing to sell e-cigarettes to minors for years, as no one wants to see children take up vaping. The Electronic Cigarette Company has not knowingly sold to minors since 2008.
A senior Trading Standards Official from Slough, when asked about the new ruling stated, “We will be checking stores to make sure they’re sticking to the new law, which is being brought in to protect children.
“Any store that breaks the law faces a hefty fine of up to £2,500.
“We also have the power to fine adults £90 if we suspect they’re buying e-cigarettes for someone who is under 18.”
All responsible vendors have welcomed the coming into law of what had been a voluntary code of conduct within the e-cigarette industry. We now have to wait for the result of the Totally Wicked challenge, which many believe will not be until early in the New Year, to see if the Tobacco Products Directive Article 20 is to be implemented into law.
