Vaping and Under 18’s

11th August 2016

An operation by Trading Standards during the first quarter of 2016 revealed that almost 40% of targeted vendors sold electronic cigarettes to under 18’s. 246 out of 634 retailers between January and March 2016 sold vaping devices and e-liquid to children aged between 14 and 17. These results were ‘disappointingly low’ according to the report, with most of the illegal sales being made at markets and car boot sales. Although most of the sales to children were made at none reputable retailers, a high number were also reported at discount stores and specialist vaping stores. The fewest sales made to children were at…

Vaping at Work, The New PHE Guidelines

21st July 2016

This week Public Health England released new guidelines to help employer’s structure vaping policies in the work place. With roughly 2.8 million vapers in the UK and this number rising steadily, the need for set policies for vapers at work is growing. PHE’s new framework gives employers advice to aid e-cigarette use in the work place, with the understanding that there is no ‘one size fits all approach’. Professor Kevin Fenton, National Director of health and wellbeing at PHE said: “The evidence is clear that vaping is much less harmful than smoking and that e-cigarettes are helping many smokers to quit. This new framework…

If there was a Brexit flavoured e-liquid, what would it be?

30th June 2016

Apparently anything that leaves a bitter taste in the mouth would be ideal! No matter what your vote during the EU referendum, vapers all over the country turned out to vote leave, in hopes that Article 20 of the TPD would be abolished. But what effect will the UK leaving the EU actually have on the vaping world? The short answer is nothing…with seemingly no plans to change! The TPD is UK law; it is already being implemented as we speak. The UK leaving the EU will have no immediate impact on the Tobacco Products Directive or Article 20. What it might do…

Public Vape Ban Called for by Leading Dr’s

23rd June 2016

The apparent risk of passive vaping is enough that Dr Iain Kennedy, a consultant in public health from Glasgow has called for a ban in public places such as bars and restaurants. He said, “There are new potential risks, and we don’t yet know the level of those risks. It is a precautionary principle – until we do the studies and have a better idea of what the risks may or may not be, we should restrict their use in public places” He went on to state that although electronic cigarettes were undoubtedly safer than cigarettes there is no evidence that they…

Vaping is a Gateway to Smoking…or is it?

16th June 2016

Earlier this week a study looking at the link between electronic cigarettes and smoking was once again severely over stated in the press. Headlines shouted “Vaping is a gateway to smoking” and “Teens who vape six times more likely to smoke cigarettes”. Doctors and tobacco harm experts are today hitting out at these claims, “The authors seem to argue that trying one puff of an e-cigarette caused some young people to try tobacco smoking within the next 16 months,” said Ann McNeill, Professor of Tobacco Addiction at King’s College London. “If so, we would be seeing large increases in tobacco smoking, but instead…

The World Health Organisation will present their latest findings regarding electronic cigarettes to tobacco control leaders at the COP7 conference in November. Under discussion will be the “control and prevention of globally emerging products” and following the WHO report, recommendations may be issued regarding e-cigarette regulation. Traditionally sceptical towards e-cigarettes it is understood that the recommendations put forward will include a restriction on vaping in public, a ban on advertising and even prohibition of e-cigarettes. Although these are guidelines and not binding to members, WHO have a strong influence on what policy is put in place. Their attitude towards vaping can only be…

Cancer Researcher and Cancer Survivor Set-up E-cigarette Shop Together

6th June 2016

Two men from Burton have joined forces to open an e-cigarette shop, but their journey to do so is quite unusual. Graham Edkins is a cancer survivor, and Dr Robert Lees is a cancer specialist. Both smoked, and neither could move away from tobacco, despite their experiences and undoubted knowledge, and several attempts to do so. But then e-cigarettes came into their lives, they actually met in an e-cigarette shop, became friends and then last year took the decision to start their own shop because of the success that they have had with them. The Burton Mail, picking up on the story write,…

More pressure being applied by Lords, MPs and MEPs regarding the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD)

2nd June 2016

Recently we have seen a ‘fatal motion’ proposed by Lord Callanan in the House of Lords, MP Anne Main has called for the House of Commons to annul the TPD, and now we see that the Conservative MEPs in Brussels are taking steps to re-open the debate on the TPD. This is heartening news for vapers, though it could be mentioned that this level of action would have been welcome 2 years ago, when the TPD was going through the EU system. Writing about this on the Conservatives in Europe blog, MEPs Julie Girling and Vicky Ford explain that they have written…

E-cigs and advertising - it’s all changed

31st May 2016

Last week the Tobacco Products Directive came into force, and along with it a change to advertising rules for the e-cigarette industry. CAP, The Committees of Advertising Practice write and maintain the UK Advertising Codes, have put out a statement in regards to the new rules. It appears though that even they may not be finding them straightforward, as they write, “However it should be understood that the TRPRs paint a complex regulatory picture. They apply only to ads for, or which indirectly promote, unlicensed, nicotine-containing e-cigarettes and not those for non-nicotine products or medicines. Additionally, the restrictions apply only in particular…

E-cigarettes Will Not be in The New Welsh Health Bill

27th May 2016

Earlier this year, the Welsh health bill that included regulations on e-cigarettes and tattoo parlours, fell at the last hurdle and was defeated by just one vote. Had it passed, it would have placed a ban on vaping in many public and enclosed public places, such as public transport, places of work and restaurants. The Bill fell at the last minute due to Plaid Cymru not supporting it after jibes were made by a Labour AM. Now, post elections, a new health bill will be introduced, but the First Minister Carwyn Jones has said plans to ban e-cigarettes in some public places…
