EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Sale of Tobacco (Register of Tobacco Retailers) Regulations 2010 (“the 2010 Regulations”) to include provision for the registration of retailers of nicotine vapour products.

Section 10 of the Tobacco and Primary Medical Services (Scotland) Act 2010 (“the 2010 Act”) requires the Scottish Ministers to keep a register of persons carrying on a tobacco business. Section 10 was amended by the Health (Tobacco, Nicotine etc. and Care) (Scotland) Act 2016 (“the 2016 Act”) to include persons carrying on a nicotine vapour product business. Section 11(2) of the 2010 Act prescribes the information which must be contained in an application to register or to add premises to the person’s existing entry in the register. The 2010 Regulations prescribe other information which must be contained in the application. These Regulations amend regulation 3 of the 2010 Regulations to include a reference to nicotine vapour product businesses.

Sections 15 to 19 of the 2010 Act make provision regarding tobacco retailing banning orders. Those provisions are amended by the 2016 Act to include nicotine vapour product banning orders. Section 19 makes provision about the display of notices stating that a banning order is in effect. These Regulations amend the 2010 Regulations and the wording of the banning notice by substituting a new schedule (which prescribes the wording of that notice) to include a reference to nicotine vapour products.

2010 asp 3. Sections 11 and 19 were amended by sections 9(1) and 10(5), respectively, of the Health (Tobacco, Nicotine etc. and Care) (Scotland) Act 2016 (asp 14).
