star this property answer text <p>No such estimate has been made.</p><p> </p><p>The Government recognises that e-cigarettes can help some smokers quit and the evidence indicates that they are considerably less harmful to health than cigarettes. Data on the long term harms of these products is not available and it is not clear how many users will go on to give up vaping as well. Smokers who continue to use tobacco alongside vaping will not benefit from the harm reduction offered by sole use of e-cigarettes.</p><p> </p><p>Data from Action on Smoking and Health indicates that around 2.8 million adults in Great Britain currently use electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes). Of these e-cigarette users, approximately 1.3 million are ex-smokers while 1.4 million continue to use tobacco alongside their e-cigarette use. In 2014, two thirds of e-cigarette users continued to use tobacco and one third were ex-smokers. This indicates that, of those using e-cigarettes, an increasing proportion no longer use tobacco and are only vaping.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 (TRPR) covers the regulation of e-cigarettes transposed from the European Union’s Tobacco Products Directive. Regulation 38 of the TRPR covers product presentation requirements and defines what can be written on a unit packet and any container pack of the electronic cigarette or refill container. Products may not for example suggest that a particular electronic cigarette or refill container is less harmful than other electronic cigarettes or refill containers; has vitalising, energising, healing, rejuvenating, natural or organic properties; or has other health or lifestyle benefits. These regulations also prohibit price reductions.</p><p> </p><p>The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) is responsible for monitoring the marketing and advertising of non-broadcast communications for electronic cigarettes. Section 22 of the ASA Committee of Advertising Practice Code concerns the regulation of marketing communications for electronic cigarettes. The code does not allow for medicinal claims but provides advice on how health claims can be made for marketing purposes that are not restricted by regulation.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has made a commitment to review the TRPR by May 2021 to consider its regulatory impact. In addition, as announced in the Tobacco Control Plan the Government will review where the UK’s exit from the EU offers us opportunities to re-appraise current regulation to ensure this continues to protect the nation’s health.</p>
