In Scotland electronic cigarettes and e-liquids are referred to as nicotine vapour products or NVPs.
To sell nicotine vapour products you must register with Scottish government as a retailer. If you also sell tobacco products you can include that in your registration.
It is an offence for you or your staff to sell nicotine vapour products to a person under the age of 18 years. Download a copy of our Underage Sales Information booklet.
You can also download a guide to compliance with regulations produced by the Scottish Grocers Federation supported by the Scottish Government.
If you sell nicotine vapour products you must keep at your premises a tangible copy of your age verification policy. This policy should specify the steps your business takes to avoid sales to underage customers. Download a sample age verification policy.
Download a Think 25 poster to advertise the policy.
You should also keep a record of all the occasions that you and your staff refuse a sale. Download a refusal form.
