What is the TPD?
The TPD is the Tobacco Products Directive. Originally put together to help regulate the tobacco industry, making it safer and fairer for consumers, somewhere along the line someone decided adding e cigarette specific legislation to the mix was a good idea.
After May 20th, 2017 all products and all retailers were (and are) expected to be fully TPD compliant.
How Do TPD Regulations Affect Vapers?
The TPD in its entirely is quite the document and so we’ve broken it down to show you the key points in terms of what it means to you, those who vape.
Size Limits on E Liquids/E Juice
Previously it was possible to buy your favourite e liquids in bigger packages however consumers are now limited to vials containing no more than 10ml.
While in theory it costs more to buy a number of smaller vials than one big one the majority of retailers are absorbing the increased cost themselves or helping customers out by holding offers, sales and more.
No more super-sized tanks. The limit on new tank sizes is 2ml. Smaller tanks being mandatory means that vapers, particularly heavy vapers, having to refill more often.
Nicotine Level Limits
You may now not buy e liquids with nicotine levels higher than 2%, or 20mg/ml. At face value this could have been disastrous for heavier smokers and those who appreciated a nicotine heavy vape. Thankfully newer devices are already finding ways to amplify the nicotine effectiveness, despite there being less of it.
New Product Restrictions
Manufacturers and retailers must wait six months before selling any new products unless the MHRA manages to clear new products quicker. While this doesn’t affect any current products, it does slow down the introduction of new e liquid flavours and more.
