The TPD is not in UK law as the TPD, for what I have seen it’s been adjusted and brought in under the TRPR, Tobacco and Related Products Regulations.

It is basically the same except for a few small changes.


    3. Member States shall ensure that:
   (a) nicotine-containing liquid is only placed on the market in dedicated refill containers not exceeding a volume of
   10 ml, in disposable electronic cigarettes or in single use cartridges and that the cartridges or tanks do not exceed a volume of 2 ml;

Some places in the EU (Germany) will still sell tanks bigger than 2ml as most tanks are not single use or classed as disposable. - in disposable electronic cigarettes or in single use cartridges


36.—(1) No person may produce or supply an electronic cigarette or refill container unless it complies with paragraphs (2) to (8), so far as relevant to the product concerned.

(2) Nicotine-containing liquid which is presented for retail sale must be in—

(a)a dedicated refill container in a volume not exceeding 10 millilitres; or
(b)a disposable electronic cigarette, a single use cartridge, or a tank, in a volume not exceeding 2 millilitres.
(3) The capacity of the tank of a refillable electronic cigarette must not exceed 2 millilitres.

Notice 36.3, that totally bans 2ml+ tanks in the UK


I know, I’m just saying there are ways around it.


Affirmation of the universal Politicians and Bureaucrats credo: We don’t know what the fuck we are doing, but we WILL stick our head up YOUR ass.


How complicated can one law be against something that almost certainly saves lives.


This is very sad :disappointed:

All my local vape shop is doings is selling you it in a two part mix it yourself 30m 100ml kit.
And they probably make there own nicotine shots and get it wholesale.
Crooks sticking it to tax payer again.
If there that desperate for cash they have chosen to hit vapers trying to save a little cash.
Wouldn’t surprise me if they legalised weed before long just to create more revenue from taxes.

If they could bring a tax on tax they would.
Instead they raise income tax.
They say we’re better off than when Henry 8 was taxing commoners.
We still pay for the queen it’s just there are more of us and more taxes than politicians that the money goes a lot further

In the UK you can not buy/sell a tank bigger than 2ml capacity.
I think in the future company’s will try to get around this by selling or including extension kits like the Ammit or Kylin tanks.


I posted that same thing about extensions last week :joy:.
Not illegal to walk around with a bigger tank than two mil?
I onl ask cos this government will make all sorts of strange laws up at the drop of a hat.
And ignore important things like putting more money into catching real crooks

Btw anyone know which of the parties that are up for election soon are standing by vapers ???


Just out of curiosity. What did your local government representatives tell you when you contacted them about the TPD/TRPR?. I’d be interested to know how they explained it to you, if they even bothered to address your concerns.
