According to media reports in Taiwan, China, since the comprehensive ban on vapes and the regulation of heated tobacco last year, law enforcement agencies have discovered a total of 579 violations and fined 33.43 million yuan. It is worth noting that in the past three months, as many as 90% of suspected illegal cases were concentrated on Facebook, Instagram, and open-air auctions.

Zeng Bochang, the section chief of the “Tobacco Hazard Prevention and Control Team of the National Health Administration” explained that for Shopee shopping, open-air auctions, revolving auctions, MOMO, Instagram, Facebook, PChome, YouTube, Dcard, 7-11, FamilyMart stores, and self-storage For websites and other online platforms and associations, the National Health Administration provides network monitoring keywords to assist platform operators in establishing independent verification and removal mechanisms, and some operators have cooperated. However, a small number of businesses still need to improve.

Zeng Bochang said that from March 22 to December 31 last year, more than 70% of suspected illegal cases under online monitoring were concentrated on Facebook, Instagram, open-air auctions and other platforms, and the proportion has increased to 90% in the past three months. We will continue to monitor and inspect the situation, and violators will be referred to the Health Bureau for disciplinary action.

According to the “Smoking Harm Prevention Act”, for prohibited vapes, as well as heated cigarettes and other tobacco products that have not passed the health risk assessment review, manufacturers and importers can be fined NT$10 million to NT$50 million; sellers and exhibitors The fee is NT$20,000 to NT$1 million; the user fee is NT$2,000 to NT$10,000.

Combining the above reports with Veehoo’s vape business, it can be seen that the vape ban has had an impact on the entire industry. As vape transactions are concentrated on online platforms, the enforcement of bans becomes more stringent. For vape production and sales companies like Veehoo, they need to pay close attention to and comply with relevant laws and regulations to avoid illegal activities.

Veehoo vapes can learn from the practice of cooperation with online platforms, establish cooperative relationships with relevant platforms, and ensure the compliance of their products through keyword monitoring and independent verification and removal mechanisms. In addition, Veehoo vapes can also strengthen communication and cooperation with the Taiwan Health Bureau, understand the latest regulations and policy changes, and adjust its business strategies in a timely manner.

Although Taiwan’s vape ban has brought certain challenges to Veehoo’s vape business, it has been able to adapt to the new market environment through cooperation with relevant institutions and online platforms. At the same time, for the entire vape industry, this ban also reminds companies that they need to pay more attention to compliance and regulatory requirements to ensure the safety and legality of products and provide users with a better consumption experience.
