Marketing of E-Cigarettes (CAP / BCAP) (extent=UK) - TSI response - April 2014

TSI response (PDF 240KB). TSI welcomes the opportunity to comment upon the proposed rules and is particularly pleased to note the specific emphasis upon the protection of children and young persons. Electronic cigarettes are an alternative to existing tobacco use, not a starting point; any references to positive qualities derived from the use of the product or promotion of smoking or tobacco products should be prohibited. It is preferable to use the term "vapouriser" rather than "electronic cigarette". The rules should be revised regularly in the light of emerging evidence and any changes to the relevant legislation.
