Tobacco Products Directive TPD the impact on vaping in Ireland

Tobacco  Products  Directive on vaping which comes into law by May 2017

The upcoming regulation and restrictions mean that the way you vape will almost certainly be affected.

For your convenience, here is an outline of the major directives effecting vaping and our opinion about them:

Tobacco Products directive

 

  • Limiting the size of e-juice containers to 10ml
  • Limiting the size/capacity of tanks or clearomizers to 2ml
  • Limiting the strength of nicotine to 20mg/ml
  • E-cigs and refill containers must have a mechanism to ensure leak free refilling
  • Notification regime
  • A ban on almost all advertising, sponsorship and promotion of e-cigarettes

At this late stage in the proceedings not much is likely to be reversed but we can only hope a light approach to the regulations is applied by our Government

The new rules will apply may this year and will be policed by health board

While the majority of the vaping community welcomes regulations, these directives may cause unintended harm. As we pointed out, some of the directives appear to be completely unnecessary and unfair. As a direct result some of your favorite products may become unavailable (hopefully this will only be temporarily).

At this late stage in the proceedings not much is likely to be reversed but we can only hope a light approach to the regulations is applied by our Government and as such that is something you can potentially influence. Let your local politicians know what vaping means to you!
