VBI fully supports Government measures to ensure the sale of e-cigarettes to over 18s only
Vape Business Ireland (VBI) fully supports government legislative measures to ensure the sale of e-cigarettes to over 18s only. The Public Health (Tobacco Products and Nicotine Inhaling Products) Bill 2019 has been brought forward by Minister for Health Simon Harris TD, to address a range of issues in relation to the sale of e-cigarettes.
VBI has long campaigned for this overdue measure to be enacted by Minister Harris and the Government. The legislation is yet to be published, however VBI wrote to all members of the Oireachtas in August and again in October (2019) urging action on legislative measures to ensure the sale of e-cigarettes to over 18s only.
The Minister has indicated changes to the licensing regime for retailers who sell vaping products, however VBI await further details to assess the specific proposals proposed by the Government.
Vape Business Ireland is Ireland’s largest vaping trade association, committed to an open discussion about vaping products in Ireland.
