What are the Risks?
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.
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
- Cyber crime
As a relatively new sector, it needs specialist advice in its insurance needs.
Regulatory and liability litigation
Manufacturers, marketers and retailers of vapour cigarettes and liquid nicotine cartridges are potential targets for future regulatory and liability litigation actions.
