Specialist e-Cigarette Retailing Premises Certificate - Victoria


You will need this certificate to display e-cigarettes and their accessories for sale. Certification will allow you to classify your retail premises as a 'specialist e-cigarette store'.

There are strict requirements as to how e-cigarettes and their products can be displayed as these devices are classified as 'tobacco products' and must only be marketed to an adult audience. Please note that you will require a separate approval to sell e-cigarettes.
