Vaping and e-cigarette bans start within WEEKS – do you know the rules?

SMOKERS of e-cigarettes beware – laws that could affect you are changing within weeks.

Trading Standard officals want retailers selling vaping products to be aware of the new regulations.

Online sellers on social media are not exempt and must comply with the rules to avoid prosecution.

Trading Standards manager Alex Fry said: “We are finding that shops are aware of the changes to the law but small online retailers are not.

“With millions of buyers ready and waiting, there’s no better place for you to sell than eBay.

“We have found online sellers selling e-liquids in 100ml bottles with a nicotine strength over 20mg/ml.

“After 20 May this will be illegal unless the e-liquid is registered as a medicine.”
