Memorandum of understanding between global vaping trade associations and campaigners

By October 8, 2018UKVIA News

The UKVIA led an international call for the World Health Organisation (WHO) to reform its stance on vaping regulation.

Organisations from 16 countries across North America, Europe, Asia and Australasia have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), making it is the first time international campaigners and vaping industry leaders have joined forces in reforming discordant global health policies.

The statement was made ahead of the 8th session of WHO’s Conference of the Parties (COP8) in Geneva (1-6 October), where their tobacco control group aimed to explore international guidance on Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (aka vaping products/e-cigarettes).
