The Independent British Vape Trade Association (IBVTA) has announced a new Board Member and an Associate Member. The Association has announced that Ben Wilson is to be joining the Board and welcomed Future Regulatory Services as Associate Member.

The Independent British Vape Trade Association says that the IBVTA Board voted to elect Ben Wilson, CEO of Wilson George Group, to the Board at the most recent meeting.

IBVTA Chairman Marcus Saxton said: “It’s great to welcome Ben Wilson to the IBVTA Board. Ben’s vast experience within the industry, coupled with his insatiable desire to see it succeed is a powerful combination, which will undoubtedly support our ambition to continue to grow and develop the independent vaping sector within the UK.”

Wilson George Group’s Ben Wilson added: “I’m delighted to be joining the IBVTA as a Board member and working collaboratively alongside some of the best mindsets in our industry. I’m looking forward to supporting the great work of the IBVTA by bringing the experience I have regarding relative safety to the forefront of conversation.

It remains a consistent challenge that the vaping industry’s reputation continues to be dragged into disrepute and I firmly believe that the IBVTA will play a key role in ending this once and for all. Thank you to Marcus and the rest of the Board for inviting me to join.”

The Independent British Vape Trade Association is also delighted to welcome Future Regulatory Services as Associate Members.

Based in Stockport, Future Regulatory Services have a vast knowledge of the requirements needed to meet the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), General Products Safety Regulations (GPSR), Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation.

The Independent British Vape Trade Association says they offer a full service for both manufacturers and importers who are wishing to submit a TPD (EU) and/or TRPR (UK) notification. Services are tailored to individual business needs and their easy to follow process will ensure products are safe to market and ready for sale in the most efficient and cost-effective way.

Lizi Jenkins, Managing Director of Future Regulatory Services, commented: “We are so excited to become an associated member of the IBVTA. With a keen interest in the safety of vaping and ensuring products on the market consistently meet the regulatory requirements, we are delighted to be involved with an association that supports and represents their members.”

Gillian Golden, IBVTA CEO added: “The IBVTA continues to provide vaping businesses with a suite of supports to assist in achieving better compliance across the sector. We are therefore delighted so many businesses supplying the UK’s vaping sector are choosing to join us. We welcome Future Regulatory Services on board and we look forward to working with them.
