    Default What Vapers In The UK Need To Know About New Laws

    If you've been using a vape machine or e-cigarette in the UK then you'll need to watch out for new rules and regulations.

    The changes mainly affect vendors in the way they sell the liquids and machines - which will have a flow on effect to customers.

    From May 20 manufacturers must be aware that:


    • Before they're sold, all e-cigarettes and e-liquids must be registered with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency
    • The maximum capacity for an e-cigarette's refillable tank must be no bigger than 2ml
    • E-liquids cannot be sold in quantities greater than 10ml
    • Nicotine within E-liquid must not exceed 20mg/ml - unless registered as a medicine
    • The packaging of E-liquids must be child-resistant and tamper evident
    • Certain additives such as the stimulants caffeine and taurine or colourings are banned
    • There are stricter labelling requirements
    • Anyone caught breaking these new rules could face two years in jail or a hefty fine.


    Product seller CigElectric believes the changes of the maximum nicotine strength won't help cigarette smokers kick the habit. It also reckons a reduction of the maximum tank capacity will reduce the range of products.

    "Expect a massive shake up of the industry with smaller businesses shutting down, a massive reduction of product offerings and increased costs across the board," it said.

    I'm guessing the 2ml restriction may be to make users more conscious of how much they are going through. Kind of like how when you spend cash you may be more conscious than making card/electronic payments.

    Most of the vaping Facebook groups im in are saying the only real change will be the purchasing of nicotine.

    Tanks and mods will still be able to be bought from well known Chinese sites.

    Obviously this is all hearsay until it kicks in-the only thing I know is all of my local vape shops have had some cracking sales trying to get rid of their 30ml stock.

    English company I buy from are already TPD compliant, makes me feel like I'm getting more for my money

    Surely, the problem is going to be the coils?
    2ml tanks are going to have short stubby coils, replacements for our bigger atty's is going to be a problem.
    May need to look at rebuildable coils, but it's not something I'm keen to persue
