A key role of the UKVIA is to educate the political community about the evidence related to the public health prize that vaping presents, and to ensure that any regulation of the industry is both responsible and proportionate.

We interact with government, regulators, the health service, and the devolved administrations on behalf of the vaping sector.

Our political activities include:

  • Directly engaging in government and agency consultations that impact our industry.
  • Providing advice and guidance to parliamentarians, such as the APPG on e-cigarettes; regulators; and other interested parties in our fast-moving sector.
  • Acting as the secretariat for the APPG on e-cigarettes.

Below are examples of key consultations the UKVIA has engaged in to date:

Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP)

European Commission

Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)

World Health Organisation (WHO)
