Welcome to VapeWatch, a new online advice and information platform to support safe vaping of disposable products, including safeguarding against them getting into the hands of U18 year olds.
So if you’re a parent or teacher worried about the fact that your children or students are gaining access to disposable vapes illegally or vaping illicit products; or a retailer, wholesaler or distributor whose concerned about the legitimacy of the vape products that you’ve purchased or supplying, VapeWatch is here to help you.
Disposable vape products have become hugely popular amongst adult smokers looking to quit their smoking habits. However, regrettably the success of the product category has attracted rogue traders – from retailers to distributors and manufacturers – who, intent on making money fast, are selling products that are either non-compliant with UK regulations or are counterfeits, placing purchasers at increased risk of harm. There is also growing evidence that disposables are being sold to schoolchildren which is illegal.
