    If we got that here, I'd consider it a win for vaping, as long as B&Ms could display & allow customers to try the products, I'd be happy with that kind of regulation.
    The prohibition in smoke free places is probably something we are going to have to concede, while not ideal, if it means being able to legally buy nicotine juice & vaping products in the same way as tobacco products, it would be worth the concession.
    Definitiely a step in the right direction for NZ.

    Yeah, plenty of people have bagged it but some say it was well before the consultation and meetings etc. so what credence does it hold and regardless it's a way forward? My feeling is they are split in NZ about the influence this may have and whether it's good, bad or middle ground.

    So essentially I'm saying I have no idea Margy.

    interesting from the UK one

    Consumers need to be assured of quality and safety, as with any other consumer product.
    Quality and safety can be addressed though consumer product standards. There are currently two publicly available quality standard guidance documents; one from the UK British Standards Institute [PAS 54115:2015 Vaping products, including electronic cigarettes, e liquids, e shisha and directly relaed products Manufacture, importation, testing and labelling –Guide]
    and the one from France - French National Agency for Standardisation (AFNOR). The European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) has set up a technical l committee to draft EU standards for e-cigarettes.
    There is also underway an ISO standard for nicotine for use in e-cigarettes [ISO/NP 20714 "E-Cigarettes-Determination of nicotine in liquids
    used in electronic nicotine delivery devices (e-liquids)"].
