Changes made to New Zealand's vaping laws are being phased in, with the next changes taking effect over the coming months. The latest changes require all packaging for smokeless tobacco products and vaping products containing nicotine to include specific labels warning of the health dangers and addictive nature of the products. Critical dates for this labelling are:
• 11 May 2022: manufacturers and importers (should be achieved by now)
• 25 June 2022: distributors, and
• 11 August 2022: general and specialist vape retailers.
The staged approach is to allow for stock rotation of products with non-compliant packaging.
