The Independent European Vape Alliance (IEVA) has asked Spain to refrain from banning flavored vapes.

According to the group, the proposed measure presents several risks.

“The effective ban of e-liquids in the Spanish market will lead to a boom in black market activities with dangerous, non–compliant products,” the IEVA wrote in a statement.

In addition, the group warned, it will cause a rise in smoking rates and put at risk more than 3,000 jobs in the Spanish vaping industry, leading to a reduction in government revenues by reducing tax collection.

The IEVA shared its concerns in a contribution to the public consultation that is currently underway.
