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.

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.

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…
