As you may have recently seen in the news, the e-cigarette industry is now regulated in the UK and across the EU. The Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) is an updated version of an EU directive. The main goal of these regulations is to promote product safety and to make consumers aware that they are purchasing products that contain nicotine. In addition to this, the regulations are in place to ensure that only people over 18+ are purchasing and using e-cigarettes and e-cigarette related products. However, this may seem more like a new-age prohibition.
