No Decisions Made Yet on the Future of Disposable Vapes

Amidst the media buzz surrounding a potential ban on disposable vapes, it’s crucial to clarify that this is currently in the consultation phase, and no definitive decisions have been reached regarding the fate of disposable vapes.

John Dunne, Director General of the UK Vaping Industry Association (UKVIA), emphasised:

“We welcome the idea of a consultation on disposables as it’s key that the industry gets the opportunity to highlight the benefits, and therefore continued need, for single-use vapes as a smoking cessation method.

“A ban is not the answer. Some 220 people die from smoking every day, 365 days a year. Disposables have proved to be highly effective in helping smokers quit their habits due to their ease of use, accessibility and low entry price points. They are one of the main reasons as to why the number of adult smokers in Great Britain have hit record lows for the last two years according to the Office for National Statistics.”

Phoenix 2 Retail has been collaborating closely with brands and regulatory bodies, introducing Pre 2 Post Market Compliance testing and comprehensive UK-wide recycling solutions to safeguard the future of the vaping category within the FMCG sector.

Chris Kelly, CEO of Phoenix 2 Retail, stated: “Regulation is an inevitable development we are confronting in this industry, and it’s imperative that we engage with government, regulators, and industry associations to facilitate change without jeopardizing our fundamental mission of assisting adult smokers in transitioning away from combustible cigarettes.

“Advocating for licensing and enforcing stricter measures against illicit sellers and retailers selling to minors is of paramount importance.”

In his capacity as the founder of Phoenix 2 Retail and as a member of the UKVIA team, Kelly pledged unwavering support for retailers, suppliers, and partners throughout this evolving journey.

Furthermore, Phoenix 2 Retail has entered into a long-term partnership with Serve Legal, the leading provider of ID and compliance testing services in the UK and Ireland. This collaboration aims to combat underage sales, enhance retailer education, and elevate performance and compliance standards among retailers.
