You do not have to be 18 years old to purchase ecigarettes Electronic Cigarette related but as a responsible vendor we enforce a very strict "over 18's" rule.
The EU TPD article 20 is an absolute disaster, and even though we will soon be no longer a part of the EU we still have to implement Article 20 of the TPD which comes in fully in May 2017.
What that means is that there will be heavy restrictions on what we can sell, below are the three main ones that we feel we should highlight for you. There are more restrictions but for simplicity we'll concentrate on the three below because these will affect almost all of our customers one way or another:
1. MAXIMUM STRENGTH IS CAPPED AT 20MG
2. MAXIMUM TANK CAPACITY IS 2ML
3. MAXIMUM BOTTLE SIZE IS LIMITED TO 10ML
Now already you can see what they have done here, they have made e-cigarettes a lot less appealing. This is especially true for current smokers who are maybe thinking of swiching, because A LOT of people will start off on 24mg, especially heavy smokers. And because no e-liquid manufacturor will want to stray over 20mg mark you will probably see 18mg being the highest strength available for sale.
There is no good reason at all to cap the tank size at 2ml, in fact if they are worried about potential spillage that will be more prone to happening when you have to re-fill your tank more frequently, the stupid wankers.
And capping the maximum bottle size at 10ml is also totally unnecessary. All this will do is create inconvenience, plus a lot more waste.
Due to the high costs of testing the e-liquids some companies will go under, and those that are paying for it will more than likely reduce their selection. Hangsen (our most popular brand) have cut theirs down quite a lot. Next May 2017 we will be losing many of our flavours (around 40% of them) because Hangsen will not be putting them through testing.
Also with the Hangsen they are only going to be doing their e-liquids in three strengths, that is 6mg, 12mg and 18mg (zero nicotine are unaffected we will still sell them in 30ml bottles as usual.) So what we have started to do is convert some of our 8mg down to 6mg, and some of our 16mg will be upped to 18mg to bring us in-line with what we will be selling after May 2017.
We have absolutely no idea how long it will take to fully extricate ourselves from the EU after the Brexit vote but it should take a maximum of 2 years from when Article 50 is finally triggered. We are hoping for some proper sensible regulation to come into force in the near future so we can offer smokers the best chance of a switch working for them but this is the current state of play. We will of course keep you all informed of any new developments.
Make no mistake this hasn't been done by accident.
