We have built up a wealth of experience across all aspects of the rapidly evolving vaping sector. If you recognise yourself in one of the following areas then you should be very conscious of the issues in arranging e-cig insurance cover and the potential risks of future regulatory and liability litigation action.

  • Distributors/retailers via internet sales of e-liquids, accessories, hardware, batteries and chargers manufactured outside the UK, predominantly China.
  • Retailers utilising shop premises sourcing e-liquids and accessories from mainly outside the UK, predominantly China.
  • Manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors of e-liquids manufactured in the UK
  • Distributors and retailers of e-liquids manufactured in the UK; accessories, hardware, chargers, batteries imported predominantly from China
  • Internet sales of e-liquid and accessories sourced from UK and China

The risk of contaminants in e-cigarettes is not yet fully evaluated, leaving much debate around inhalation, ingestion and skin absorption exposures. Another safety concern is the recharging of lithium batteries presenting a potential fire risk. Add to this, the increasing attractiveness of e-cig stock to thieves and this is a sector needing specialist advice in its insurance needs.

Manufacturers, marketers and retailers of  vapor cigarettes and liquid nicotine cartridges are potential targets for future regulatory and liability litigation actions.

Anthony Jones are able to offer solutions for:

  • Manufacturing risks
  • E-cigarette wholesalers and distributors
  • Internet sales
  • Cyber liability
  • Retailers shop keepers package including products liability
  • Property damage and loss of income/business interruption
