This consultation is seeking comments on proposed measures to limit the advertising of vaping products.

  • health partners
  • the general public
  • interested members of the industry

What

The purpose of this consultation is to get comments on the following proposals by which advertising of vaping products can be limited to protect youth and non-users from the effect of promotion:

  • limit the places where advertisements can placed;
  • limit the content in advertisements;
  • inform the public through a warning on advertisements;
  • limit the display of vaping products in certain retail locations.
