We are currently assessing the regulations on the branding and packaging of e-cigarette products to ensure that they do not inadvertently appeal to non-smokers or young people. A range of regulatory proposals, including related to e-cigarettes, are being considering as part of the Independent Review on Tobacco Control and for the Tobacco Control Plan.
