The ‘Vaping Crackdown’ starts today. This is what you need to know

Last year Public Health England backed the availability of e-cigarettes on the NHS, yet millions have given up tobacco already via an unregulated consumer product.

Every part of the e-cig supply chain is affected in some way.

New liquids and hardware now require a six-month approval period, and approval costs.

The maximum nicotine concentration in a liquid is 20mg/ml – short of the 24mg/ml smokers look for when they start to vape.

But compared to the USA, where the Federal Drug Administration s busybodies have set out to destroy large sections of the market overnight via their proposed regulations or even parts of the EU, the UK may see comparatively much less disruption.

Because of the huge uptake of e-cigarettes in the UK, a pioneering market for the tech, and an effective and articulate grassroots effort, e-cigarette campaigners have been assured by the Department of Health and the designated approval agency the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency MHRA that implantation of the rules will be as light as possible.
