TPD - How will it affect me?

TPD (Tobacco Products Directive) - an update

We have been contacted recently by a number of customers concerned about the impact of the new EU legislation, known as TPD, which comes into force on May 20th this year.  I will try to address the most frequent concerns raised.  If you have any further questions, please post a comment below.

Will I still be able to buy products from Make My Vape?

Yes.  Although the law comes into force this May, there is a 12 month grace period for vendors to sell items currently stocked.  This means that all of our products will be available as normal until at least May 2017.

What happens after that?

As we understand the draft legislation, the only component of DIY e-liquid which will be affected will be liquid nicotine. Every other product should not be affected by this legislation?

So will I be able to make e-liquid with nicotine after May 2017?

Yes. It will still be possible to purchase nicotine, although the quantities in which you can do so may be restricted. However, no official guidance has yet been given as to how this will apply to our product, so at this stage we must wait for clarification. As soon as we know what the situation will be, we will let you know.

What does the future hold for DIY mixing?

Our understanding is that we will continue to supply e-liquid mixing supplies, including nicotine, beyond May 2017. We are committed to working with the relevant bodies to ensure that we can, within the new law, continue to offer our customers top quality ingredients to make e-liquid.
