New Vaping laws will affect local Guildford stores

Published at 7:02am 21st May 2017.

New laws around e-cigarettes are set to have an impact on traders in Surrey and Hampshire.

New laws put restrictions on tank capacity and the maximum volume of e-liquid in one refill container.

It means users will only be able to buy 10ml bottles. 

Brett Horth, CEO of Guildford-based Vapouriz group, and founding member and director of the UK Vaping industry association said about the tank change: ''I don't see any reason for doing that, the most popular are 30ml.

"By reducing it to 10ml all Brussels are doing is increasing packaging waste so environmentally its not so friendly at all.'' 

Vape products must also now include labelling with warnings.

There is a ban on certain ingredients, the restriction on nicotine strength. 

The new laws come into affect this weekend.

Brett added: ''The new rules and regulations, whilst they are a bit excessive, the whole industry hasn't been regulated and as a business we feel there does need to be regulation. 

''I think its going to be good for the industry to have regulation and it will sort out the proper companies from people that are making it from their kitchen.''

The Vaping industry association is an organisation which is made up of 12 members, 8 of them are the leading vape manufactures with the other 4 are from tobacco companies. 

With the new regulations on the horizon, Brett says sales have gone up: ''We have been doing a sale over the last month to clear non-TPD compliant package stock, it has been successful.'"
