VPASA Youth Access Prevention Guidelines
We launched our Youth Access Prevention campaign in March 2021. The campaign saw manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers of EVPs under VPASA pledge to not sell vapour products to under-18s – or be subjected to a disciplinary process. Our focus is twofold: to self-regulate our members to protect access to youth while also securing the right to the use of EVPs by existing adult vapers and smokers who are seeking a less-harmful alternative to combustible cigarettes.
