From the 1st of October 2015, a law was implemented that bans the sale of ecigarettes ,refill containers and nicotine containing eliquids as described in the Tobacco Products Directive to all individuals under the age of 18. This legislation includes both “Brick & Mortar” stores and online retailers.
The penalty in the United Kingdom for selling to any person under the age of 18 is a fine up to £2500.

We’re pleased to have an age verification system in place which conforms to both international laws regarding the sale of age restricted products and also data privacy legislation such as GDPR.
The system is minimally intrusive for the customer during checkout and a trusted and effective way to ensure no age restricted products are sold to customers under the age of 18.
