These signs are being reviewed in relation to any additional “No vaping” messaging. This review will take 4 to 6 months.

We ask that if you are a school, kōhunga reo, early childhood education facility (ECE) or kura please only order these if you currently do not have these metal signs already in place.


From 11 May 2021 under the Smokefree Environments and Regulated Products (Vaping) Amendment Act 2020, all schools, kōhunga reo, ECEs and kura must, in addition to the existing requirement to display ‘no smoking’ notices, be required to display 'no vaping' notices. These notices must be displayed at every entrance to premises and buildings or enclosed areas on the premises (this excludes buildings and areas not usually in use).

Schools, kōhunga reo, ECEs and kura will be sent (free of charge) no vaping/smokefree stickers between 30 April and 3 May 2021. The stickers are double sided and can be used on windows and doors, including wooden doors.
