Youth vaping: call for evidence

Closes 6 Jun 2023

Opened 24 Apr 2023


The government is holding this call for evidence to identify opportunities to reduce the number of children (people aged under 18) accessing and using vape products, while ensuring they are still easily available as a quit aid for adult smokers.

They are particularly interested in evidence for the following themes.

  1. Building regulatory compliance: ensuring only adult smokers can access legally compliant vape products.
  2. The appeal of vape products: how the appearance and product characteristics of vapes may attract children.
  3. Marketing and promotion of vape products: how the marketing and promotion of vapes may attract children.
  4. The role of social media: the impact of social media on the uptake and use of vaping by children.
  5. Effective educational approaches to prevent the uptake of vaping by children.
  6. The impact of vapes on the environment, particularly disposable products.
  7. Understanding the vape market.
