TPD Vaping Law UK 2017: Here’s Everything You Need to Know about e-cig Rules
Evidence shows that e-cigarettes are far less harmful than smoking. Yes, I’ll say it again: E-cig are still far safer than smoking.
In September 2016 the WHO report set out a new e-cigarette regulation for those countries who signed up to the convention on tobacco control. These options were primarily about banning or restricting the sale and marketing of e-cigarettes.
In May 2017 the Tobacco Products Directive will come into force. So, this will be the year of change for electronic cigarettes industry in the UK. Here are some of the 2017 regulations and restrictions on e-cig that you must know and comply to.
- Maximum refill quantities should not be greater than 10ml
- Maximum nicotine strength of 20mg: The strength of nicotine in e-liquids must not exceed 20mg/ml
- E-liquids cannot be sold in quantities greater than 10ml
- Maximum tank capacity of 2ml: Now say goodbye to sub ohm vaping and variable mods
- Only electronic cigarette products that are registered with Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency can be sold
- Product approvals, customer notifications, Packaging requirements and data reporting: This is to increase quality control and safety over the e-cigs. This is already done by some of the reputable retailers and manufacturers.
Kindly share this post as much as possible as there are many new and regular e-cig users who are unaware of the upcoming changes to the UK vaping laws and regulations.
