Tobacco and e-cigarette laws and businesses

On 29 May 2024 the South Australian Government announced it is further cracking down on the sale of illegal tobacco and vaping products in South Australia, with a significant funding boost to shake up enforcement against criminal activity. 

From 1 July 2024, licensing and enforcement functions for the sale and supply of tobacco and e-cigarettes in South Australia are transferring to Consumer and Business Services (CBS). This includes oversight of offences relating to illicit products, sales to minors, advertising, promotion, display, and packaging of tobacco and e-cigarette products. See the latest information at Consumer and Business Services website.

SA Health's role

SA Health will retain both its role in formulating policy in relation to vaping and tobacco, as well as regulating smoke-free areas within South Australia. For more information visit Smoking, the rules and regulations.
