Are e-Cigarette manufacturers responsible for goods supplied to shops or wholesalers?

The simple answer is yes! An e-cig manufacturer has a legal responsibility for any goods supplied to third parties. Whilst some retailers may also engage in their own blending or mixing process, whenever injury or damage occurs, lawyers will still involve all relevant parties in their proceedings whilst responsibility is determined. In the vape industry this is particularly important as you cannot rely on your end retailers remaining in business or retaining the correct cover themselves – if you purchase the correct level of insurance then the insurer will manage the claims process and defend your position as appropriate.
