Adact Primary Authority Partnership – Boosting Productivity and Compliance

We often receive calls from our clients who have been challenged by regional trading standards bodies regarding their interpretation of the UK Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 (TRPR) which implemented the TPD in the UK. The trading standards bodies across the UK often interpret the regulations in different ways which results in confusion, stress and lost time for our clients.

In order to assist the entire vaping industry Adact Medical Ltd have entered into a government sponsored partnership under the Regulatory Enforcement & Sanctions Act 2008 with the Peterborough & Cambridgeshire County Council Trading Standards to form The Adact Primary Authority Partnership (Adact PAP)*

We invite you to become a member of the Adact PAP and to then deal exclusively with Peterborough & Cambridgeshire County Council Trading Standards.


“It just makes perfect sense! As soon as Trish told me that Adact were setting up a partnership with Peterborough and Cambridge Trading Standards I signed up. I have wasted too much of my time dealing with different enforcement officers who all seem to interpret TPD in different ways”

What do primary authorities do?

Primary authorities provide advice to businesses that other local regulators must respect on compliance with the regulations. They can also produce an inspection plan for a business to improve the effectiveness of visits by local regulators and underpin better sharing of information.

Short-fill compliance and the Adact PAP

As UKVIA members Adact are committed to the growth and promotion of the vaping industry and the continuous improvement of standards for consumer protection. Adact have commissioned the Adact PAP on behalf of the UK vaping industry to produce clear guidelines regarding Short-Fill compliance in accordance with the General Products Safety Regulations and our trading standards officer is in contact with the MHRA. We look forward to sharing these guidelines once this critical work is complete.

Adact urge you to join the Adact PAP in complete confidence that this small investment will benefit your business greatly.
