There are no current plans to publish a strategy on youth vaping, but the Government will keep this under review.

We have a range of measures in place to prevent vapes being used by young people. The law restricts sales to over 18 years of age only, limits nicotine content, refill bottle and tank sizes, and has specific requirements on labelling and through advertising restrictions. In October 2022, we published new content on the potential risks of vaping on the Talk to Frank and Better Health websites and we have also developed a suite of resources for schools to use on vaping
