Vaping products - tightening rules on advertising and promotion: consultation 2022

Public consultation into additional controls to limit advertising and promotion of vaping products in Scotland.

Sponsorship of an activity, event or person

60. The Scottish Government intends to prohibit entering into an agreement with an individual, group or business for the purpose of promoting a vape product. Vape products should not be associated with clubs, events, activities, individuals or groups.

61. Vaping companies have, as their tobacco counterparts did in the UK previously, already entered sponsorship agreements with premium sporting clubs and activities.[31]

62. We propose that restrictions be introduced to prohibit sponsorship of activities, events or individuals here in Scotland. This restriction would limit the awareness of non-smokers and young people of vape products, to ensure that these are not seen as a lifestyle product.
