Although nicotine is a tobacco product in its purest form, e-liquid is not. Why was all vaping equipment and e-liquid included in the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016? It was probably a good idea at the time.Vaping was virtually unknown ten years ago. The industry was desperate for some regulation. Based on the information available at the time about vaping and the requirement to agree to the law centrally within the EU, it made sense to sign off on the law.
The TRPR law was into effect on May 20, 2016. Five weeks later, the Brexit referendum vote was held. Since then, the Government has confirmed that vaping laws would be reviewed as part of a post-Brexit assessment ( page 27 of the Government’s “Smokefree Generation” plans). We may need to wait a while before changing the TRPR because of the coronavirus crisis.
We are so excited to get to go back to the road again. We are keeping an eye on Government announcements and looking into short breaks. We wish you a wonderful holiday, no matter where or when you travel. Grab your passport and get out there!
Vaping laws have been combined with smoking laws for over half a century under the UK’s Tobacco and Related Products Regulations. These rules govern how e-cigarettes and liquids are sold, how we can vape, and how much we can purchase in one go.Many vapers feel unfairly lumped with smokers. Some don’t see how a liquid could even be considered a tobacco product. Tensions surrounding the UK TRPR law are directly connected to the EU’s Tobacco Products Directive ( explained here).
Although we would like to rewrite certain aspects of the TRPR, it is clear that a large portion of the liquid used in the UK contains tobacco products. It is also beneficial to combine vaping with smoking under one law.This guide will explain why e-liquid is currently considered a tobacco product by the UK and EU Laws. We will also share our views on how and when the UK’s rulebook may change.
Shortfill e-liquid contains no tobacco. It is simply a blend of VG, PG, and flavorings. Boosters and nic salts, however, contain nicotine almost exclusively extracted from the tobacco plant. E-liquids infused with nicotine are almost always made from tobacco products.
Because nicotine can technically be synthesized in a laboratory, I use the term “almost always.” It is not economically feasible to synthesize nicotine here in the UK. This is because it is a complicated and expensive process. Extracting nicotine from tobacco leaves is the simplest and most cost-effective way to create nicotine. This is why nicotine boosters, salts, and other nicotine products are technically still ‘tobacco products.
