Confused about e-cigarettes and the law?
When it comes to the issue of the public use of electronic cigarettes, UK law is very clear. They are allowed as long as property owners and managers do not object. That means e-cigarette users can vape in public most of the time. They are free to practice their habit:
at pubs and bars
on public streets
in taxis and work vehicles.
The key thing to understand about vaping is that it is not included in the 2007 nationwide smoking ban. That ban deals only with combustible tobacco and since e-cigarettes involve neither tobacco nor combustion, they are totally exempt.
Object to or permit the use of electronic cigarettes, PARRS have a brand new range of signs specially designed to clarify and confusion that may arise from the use of e-cigarettes.
