TPD Compliance! TPD Regulations! TPD Sale!
What is the TPD?
TPD stands for Tobacco Products Directive. Although designed to regulate the tobacco industry, the bill also deals with electronic cigarettes. You can find the e-cig specific regulations in Article 20 of the TPD.
TPD Article 20 has become the basis of new UK vape laws and regulations.
What does the TPD mean for vapers?
You’ll find a breakdown of how the TPD affects UK e-cigarette retailers here, but here’s a summary of some of the key points most likely to affect vapers.
10ml Limit On E-Liquid
The maximum size for e-liquid in a single bottle is now 10ml.
Products that do not meet the definition (such as disposable e-cigarettes that do not contain nicotine and 0% nicotine e-liquids) are out of scope of the TPD and do not have to meet its requirements.
