A Tobacco Regulatory Services Group Joins the IBVTA as Associate Member

Future Regulatory Services have a vast knowledge of tobacco regulatory requirements such as the ones needed to meet the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), General Products Safety Regulations (GPSR), Classification, Labeling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation.

“We are so excited to become an associated member of the IBVTA. With a keen interest in the safety of vaping and ensuring products on the market consistently meet the regulatory requirements, we are delighted to be involved with an association that supports and represents their members,” said the Managing Director of the group Lizi Jenkins.

While IBVTA CEO Gillian Golden, that the partnerships will be of value in ensuring compliance. “The IBVTA continues to provide vaping businesses with a suite of supports to assist in achieving better compliance across the sector. We are therefore delighted so many businesses supplying the UK’s vaping sector are choosing to join us. We welcome Future Regulatory Services on board and we look forward to working with them.“

An insurance company also recently joined the group
Given the fact that vapers have been facing many challenges, with many having to pay the same life and health insurance rates as smokers, recently the IBVTA has also welcomed insurance company Lifeguarded, as an Associate Member.

The insurance company works in partnership with a mainstream insurer who also recognises that vapers are not exposed to the same health risks as smokers. Therefore they are helping create a unique opportunity for UK vaping businesses to increase customer loyalty, while helping smokers who make the switch to save money in the long run.

Lifeguarded Sales Director, Matthew Thompson, said that they are happy to be part of the movement encouraging the vaping industry to be treated as an independent sector. “We are delighted to be affiliated with the IBVTA and are keen to re-enforce the message that e-cigarettes and vaping should be treated as an independent sector, entirely separate from the tobacco industry.”
