Protecting young people and non-smokers

Young people should not be using vaping products at all, full stop. It is not the intention of vaping product manufacturers to sell to young people; and, unlike cigarette manufacturers, it is not in their business interests to do so.

Regular vaping among young people in the EU who have not previously smoked remains low and there is no evidence that vaping products are causing more young people to smoke. IEVA supports measures that both reduce access and appeal to young people while preserving harm reduction through vaping for those people who need it.
