From May 20th, the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 come into effect and they have significant impact on many e-cigarette and vaping companies. The changes regulate what can and can’t be sold and they make it even more important to have the right level of e-cigarette insurance in place for your vaping shop, factory or other business in this sector.
The new legislation makes some big changes to the sale of e-cigarettes and e-liquids including:
- Refillable tanks can measure no more than 2ml in capacity
- E-liquids cannot be sold in bottles larger than 10ml
- All e-cigarettes and e-liquids must be registered with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency before they can be sold
- All packaging must be child-resistant and tamper evident
These are just some of the changes coming into effect and this may mean a change of how you produce your product range or order your stock but more importantly, it may mean you need to remove certain products from sale.
