Vaping products bill to go before House of Keys next week

Thu, 08 Jun 2023

The Vaping Products Bill 2023 will be put before the House of Keys next Tuesday. 

It aims to bring in age restrictions on the sale and importation of vaping products, as well as restrictions for point of sale displays to reduce the visibility of those products to children. 

 The Bill, which was consulted on earlier this year, would bring the Isle of Man in line with the UK for age controls on the sale of vaping products.  The Island would move ahead of the UK with controls restricting the advertising and display of vaping products in retailers in a similar way as tobacco, where the premises are accessible to those under 18.

It will also allow the Island to set its own controls on the standards vaping products must meet to be eligible for sale. 

These regulations would start with the equivalent UK legislation as a base line, but there would also be an opportunity to update regulatory controls as needed.
