Regulation and product standards – current controversies for the vape industry
13:50 - 14:05
Industry, Regulation and Tobacco Control
Why are flavours important, and what considerations need to be made for a producer to satisfy themselves objectively that unnecessary risks are not presented to the consumer? Should such considerations be entirely optional, defined in formal standards, or enshrined in law? How is it that things have gone so badly wrong for THC vape products in the USA? Where did the popularity of nicotine salt rise from; are salt formulations of genuine benefit in a TPD regulated market? Can an independent vape industry survive in markets where prohibitions so firmly favour tobacco and pharmaceutical industry offerings? All of these controversies will be considered from the perspective of an independent e-cigarette business with the interest of its customers, almost all of whom are ex-smokers or smokers intending to quit, at the heart of everything it does.
