Youth Access Prevention

Self-regulating our members to protect access to youth, in line with global best-practices.

"We want to send a very clear message to the government that we want to work with them, as well as that we are a sector that is capable of acting responsibly in areas such as the prevention of youth access to ENDS, where it arguably matters most”.
Orange and Dark Blue Debate Team Poster (16)

Sanity Should Prevail Over the Regulation of Electronic Vapour Products at COP-9

"It is hoped that the likes of the UK, Canada, France, and New Zealand will appeal for sanity to prevail and call for scientific based regulation of EVP’s and not the WHO’s proposals that are mainly based on subjective speculation and no scientific proof".

We recognise the need for a properly regulated industry, and we will work with regulatory bodies and government to ensure that the vapour products industry is accountable and responsible in its actions. We are also committed to working with research institutions and the medical fraternity to add to the vast body of research in this area.

VPASA is committed to providing an alternative to combustible tobacco products for adult consumers:
  • VPASA members sell only to adults and not minors
