E-Cigarette & Vape Stores
Vaping, CBD Oils, E-Cigarettes and Reduced-Harm Tobacco Products often still contain addictive ingredients and face age restrictions and prohibitions in many countries.
You need to take active steps to prevent young customers from accessing age restricted products. This includes creating an expectation of challenge for ID by displaying appropriate warning signage, being prepared for young customers by training your staff and checking that your age check systems are working.
How can the Age Check Certification Scheme help e-cigarette and vape stores?
We test that age check systems work. We do this through audits, test purchasing and mystery shopping. We also provide the training that you need for your staff and all of the industry standard signage and materials for a professional approach. We can help with age verification policies and if you have an online store, we can test this against PAS 1296:2018.
Why do I have to get this done?
Local laws place obligations on e-cigarette, vape stores, CBD oil sellers and sellers of reduced harm tobacco products to take steps to prevent the underage sale of age restricted goods. In some countries the supply of these products are prohibited. The penalties for failing to comply can be substantial including the forced closure of your business.
What posters and materials do I need to be compliant?
You may be required to display certain posters or warnings in relation to particular products. This is most common for retailers or tobacco and alcohol.
Our shop has all of the materials, posters, badges, signs and policies that you need to comply with local laws. Find everything you need in POS products for the vaping industry.
