At ECITA, we have been through the legal statutes, regulations, and government guidance notes and created the 'Industry Standard of Excellence'. ECITA members are given a copy, as are their Trading Standards Officers. We are happy to meet your Trading Standards Officer with you (or independently, if you prefer) so that we can help them to understand your business and your products. We have found this to be a very successful formula, and Trading Standards Officers have told us that they are grateful for our support and assistance in this complicated area.
Assistance with regulatory law

The ISE details the specifics of what is required for electronic cigarette products, on everything from packaging and labelling requirements (under CHIP) to the intricacies of online selling regulations.

 

Please remember that these are legal requirements that apply to your business. We have taken the time to go through this with a fine-toothed comb so that you don't have to. We have worked closely with Trading Standards Officers and enforcement officers from other areas of government to ensure that we have covered all the necessary legislation, and that our members are operating to the highest possible standards.
