Product Liability

Product liability is the main area of focus for manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and retailers, particularly being held responsible for:

  • Injuries caused by products
  • Damage to property caused by products
  • Contaminants in e-cigarettes and vaping devices

As ingredients and contaminants have not yet been fully evaluated or regulated, there is still much debate around inhalation, ingestion and skin absorption exposures.The Government has published guidance around the product liability and safety law.

Crime

With the number of vape shops growing rapidly, they are becoming increasingly attractive to thieves. This includes:

  • Vaping and electronic cigarette stock
  • On-site equipment and cash

As a relatively new sector, it needs specialist advicein its insurance needs.

How does insurance for vape shops differ to other businesses?

Many of the insurance requirements for vape shops will be the same or similar to other businesses. For example, if you employ anyone you’ll need Employer’s Liability insurance, if customer visit your premises, you’ll need Public Liability insurance and if you have shop premises, you’ll need Buildings and Contents insurance.

However, as a vape shop, your risk exposure may be different to other businesses. For example, if you mix your own e-liquids this should be taken into account, as should the value of any specialist stock you hold, when assessing your insurance needs.

It’s worth talking to an insurance broker to get advice about vaping insurance for your business to make sure you get cover tailored to the specific risks your vape shop faces as these will be different to other retail businesses.

I have been a client of Anthony Jones for over 10 years as the broker for the buildings & associated insurances for our freehold property of 3 flats. For the last 6 years I have dealt with Tom Cowap who is always highly efficient, professional and easy to deal with. He really went above and beyond this year when he found the existing policy had stopped covering flood risk and that the alternatives offered a significant increase in premium on the previous year. He didn't involve me until he'd found policies which offered the right cover, but with a reasonable premium and it was genuinely surprising that he didn't try to sell me the more expensive option. I can't imagine wanting to move to a different broker in future because of this great service. Thanks Tom!

I wrote the following two years ago. Since then, I have continued to receive great service from the team at Anthony Jones - they are courteous & very effective, a pretty good combination for an insurance broker!"I chair a campaign to save our local pub. We launched a share sale and succeeded in buying the Crown a few days ago, so we needed help in selecting the right insurance for the site whilst renovations were under way, including unoccupied property cover. Tony Ellis of Anthony Jones Insurance was really helpful in guiding us through this process, and we now have the correct cover in place. Fast, easy to deal with & knowledgeable - just what you need from your insurance broker! Well done Tony and all at A Jones."
