Are You Vending Condoms with Integrity?

Condom vending is a common activity in businesses, pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. It is suitable for any establishment with toilets or washrooms which experience frequent usage by staff or visitors.

Selling condoms from vending machines can be a very profitable business: costs are low, margins are high and if the machine is installed in the right location, demand remains consistent.

As the business of condoms (prophylactics) can be a sensitive (!) and a sometimes controversial subject, it is important to apply careful thought and consideration to all the related choices and decisions involved, ensuring full compliance with government rules and regulations so as to avoid any potential negative consequences.

There are various ways to tell the authenticity and provenance of products such as condoms, which is vital to do if you are considering selling them. Supplying defective or substandard condoms could have potentially devastating, even life threatening consequences for your consumers and could seriously affect your company’s image and reputation.

Depending on where the condoms were manufactured, the quality assurance marks you will look for will differ. In the United Kingdom, the standard symbol of quality is the Kitemark (more information can be found here: Kitemark – Official Website). The Kitemark is recognised worldwide as a symbol of trust, integrity and quality and purchasers should not accept any condoms manufactured in the United Kingdom without this mark.

Further afield, Europe’s basic requirement is the familiar CE mark (CE marking information). CE marking is mandatory in all EU countries, but more specifically all countries of the European Economic Area (EEA). Condoms made in the United States are required to gain mandatory approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

You should expect to see both the Kitemark and the CE mark on condoms manufactured in the United Kingdom. It is also important to be aware of ISO standards (International Organisation for Standardisation – Official Website) and check the condoms conform with ISO 4074 (the minimum standard). This should be written on the packaging of the product.

It goes without saying that all the condoms we supply are fully compliant with all regulations. If you decide to purchase condoms from us you can have complete peace of mind; our condoms come with both the Kitemark and CE mark emblems and clearly state ISO 4074 conformity.

We provide excellent condoms at some of the best prices around. Let Intelligent Vending Ltd be your condom supplier and your condom vending service can be safe, trustworthy and highly profitable.
