Officers at Dundee City Council’s Trading Standards need the help of carefully selected 18-22 year old volunteers to purchase tobacco or nicotine vapour products from a variety of retail premises in Dundee.

The operation will take part over the course of a day where they will enter retail premises and attempt to purchase a tobacco or vaping product.

The aim of the project is to identify traders who are selling tobacco or vapour products without implementing a ‘Challenge 25’ policy. This will help Trading Standards to then take action to prevent crime and protect the health and wellbeing of young people.
