Electronic Cigarettes - Community Consultation

ACT Health conducted a public consultation between 12 November and 24 December 2014 regarding the sale and use of personal vaporisers, also known as electronic cigarettes.

The discussion paper sought feedback from the community on policy options to:

  • prevent the uptake of personal vaporisers, particularly by children and young people, and
  • prevent the renormalisation of smoking and protect the public from second-hand vapour.

ACT Health is committed to ensuring that any potential harms to the community associated with electronic cigarettes are minimised, while retaining access to the devices for smokers who choose to use them to help quit smoking.

242 submissions were received from the community, including individuals, businesses, industry groups, public health organisations and an external government agency. A summary of the submissions is available. A list of individual submissions can be viewed below.
