We are Arcus


Lee Bryan & John Walker are two of the best-known names in the vaping industry, gaining a reputation for truly caring for their clients and delivering on their promises, since Arcus Compliance was established in 2017.. With over 25 years’ collective experience across the vaping sector, and a set of finely-honed skills, having worked with some of the largest & best-known vaping brands in the world, your business can take advantage of our extensive experience and implement best-practice compliance, with immediate, positive impact.

We work closely with decision-makers, regulatory bodies and enforcement agencies, so your business can utilise our experience of interpreting the regulations to best suit your needs. This also allows us the benefit of being able to breathe fresh life into your compliance strategy, ensuring it aligns effectively with your commercial goals.

We are Compliance


To enable brands to have a greater understanding of compliance, we have developed a library of frequently updated white papers and infographics, in addition to our innovative proprietary Software as a Service (SaaS) tools, available in multiple languages, allowing brands to grow and control some aspects of product stewardship, and helping to reduce the cost of regulatory compliance significantly. Arcus Compliance’s consulting services enable us to effectively support your internal resource, allowing them to utilise our expertise, ensuring basic compliance tasks are handled effectively, accurately & efficiently internally.

By educating your internal team, we are able to ensure your retained hours are saved for more complex tasks & research. There is also a substantial cost-benefit to outsourcing a niche function, such as regulatory compliance.  Your business won’t suffer from a ‘learning curve’, there is no sickness, or holiday issues, and our team are constantly striving to improve best-practice across the industry through our extensive client base and positively & fairly influence regulatory bodies.


When you drill down to any regulated market you will soon realise there is far more to it than meets the eye. Whether you tackle it in-house or outsource it, we can make the journey far less painful, whether through education or implementation.
