Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 190885, tabled on 13 November 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment his Department has made of the effectiveness of the regulation of non-nicotine liquid for vape products and nicotine shots.

Answered on

20 November 2018

Nicotine shots are regulated under the Tobacco and Related Products Regulation 2016 as they are a nicotine containing product. As shortfills do not contain nicotine when sold they are not regulated under the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 (TRPR), but are covered by General Product Safety Regulations.

The Government is committed to conduct a review of the TRPR at a later date.
