Industry reaction

We look at how the industry reacted to the news that single-use vapes are to be banned and what led the government to this decision.


Can Trading Standards manage to enforce this new legislation? Will they be looking at the right stores when it comes to cracking down on illicit sales? Our experts discuss how effective a ban will actually be from an underage and illicit sales perspective.

Next steps

What advice is there for retailers and what can they do now?

It is also hosting the Safe and Responsible Retailing Conference in Birmingham on 5 March.
