Age Guidance for Vendors Issued
A comprehensive age of sale guidance has been issued by the Independent British Vape Trade Association (IBVTA).
They say that through the provision of credible knowledge and guidance it “supports the independent vape trade and promotes constructive interaction between this industry sector and the scientific community, vapers, policy makers, and the general public.”
The organisation offers many forms of guidance and support, including regulatory compliance advice. It firmly believes that non-compliance must not be allowed to become a competitive advantage over reputable businesses.
The IBVTA are part of a Primary Authority partnership with Kent Trading Standards, and this guidance. Has been developed in part with the KTS. The Age of Sale guidance includes advice on compliance under all aspects of regulation such as:
- verifying the ages of customers,
- preventing proxy/underage online sales,
- record keeping and staff training.
The advice within the guidelines will be incredibly useful to vape shops, convenience stores, and any other retail outlets that carry vaping products, such as phone and gift shops.
We at Supergood are incredibly supportive of these comprehensive guidelines, as we know that it is very important that our products are not used by anyone under the age of 18.
This is why we have implemented an age verification system on our website, which occurs after the order has been placed. It’s completely secure, safe, and once you have ordered with us once you won’t need to verify again as you are remembered on the system.
