Fighting for Science-Based Policies that Ensure The Continued Availability of Less Harmful Nicotine Products
For nearly a decade, the Vapor Technology Association has been at the forefront of defending the vapor industry and the rights of adult consumers to choose their preferred alternative to cigarettes. We engage directly with policy makers and the media to shape the future of vaping and nicotine policy in Washington DC and throughout the country.
The History of the VTA
Around 2010, vapor products emerged as a safer alternative to smoking and gained popularity among consumers. Regulators took notice and were quick to initiate sweeping regulations. Hoping to create a clear voice for thoughtful regulation in Washington, DC, the Vapor Technology Association (VTA) was founded by a group of concerned vapor companies in 2015.
Since then, VTA grew to become a leading national trade association defending the industry. VTA advocates for rational science-based regulation of the alternative nicotine products industry to ensure that we achieve the twin goals of preserving adult access to a wide variety of nicotine products while at the same time preventing youth access.
VTA has been on the forefront of every issue confronting the industry and we are committed to continue our efforts to create a rational, transparent and fair market place for our members to operate.
We are eager to provide you with more information. Please don’t hesitate to reach out.
VTA is run by a group of dedicated professionals with a unique blend of government affairs, public policy, legal and communications experience. We are committed to ensuring the vapor industry continues to thrive and innovate.
