No specific assessment has been made recently. Product standards and requirements of e-cigarettes, including how they are advertised, is regulated by the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 (TRPR).

The Department will be carrying out a post implementation review of TRPR, and this will include a public consultation on the regulations which will be published shortly. The consultation will provide an opportunity to comment on the current advertising regulations for e-cigarettes.
