European Court Rules on Article 20 of the Tobacco Products Directive


Yesterday Totally Wicked UK lost its challenge to Article 20 of the European Unions Tobacco Products Directive (TPD).

Totally Wicked’s two-year long battle with the EU’s Article 20 of the TPD was lost yesterday when the CJEU ruled to bring e-cigarettes and e-liquid within its regulatory scope as tobacco related products - despite not containing tobacco - and to subject e-cigarettes to more stringent regulation than some conventional tobacco products.

Fraser Cropper, Managing Director of Totally Wicked said,

“Today is a bitterly disappointing end to a battle that has lasted more than two years.  At its heart, was a fundamental dispute between those who recognise the public health potential vaping offers and therefore wish to see these products and their use flourish under a robust yet proportionate consumer regulatory regime, and those who either do not understand vaping or see it as a threat to established interests and therefore wish to see e-cigarettes subjected to a disproportionate and inappropriate regulatory regime.”

The future of vaping as it stands leaves us only able to buy 10ml bottles of e-liquid with a maximum nicotine strength of 20mg/ml and the largest tanks having a 2ml fluid capacity.
