France

               

Brief Overview

The use of e-cigarettes is permitted in most outdoor public places and is classified as a consumer product in France.  As such, you can find an abundance of vape stores around the country.

Vaping is banned in all indoor public places (government buildings, offices, public transportation, universities, museums, restaurants, cafés, night clubs, etc.). Cafés and shops selling vape products are submitted to the same regulations.

Additionally, some outdoor public places also ban vaping (train stations).

France abides by the EU TPD, and as such, nicotine content of e-liquid must be less than or equal to 20mg/mL, single use e-cigarettes as well as e-cigarette tanks must not exceed 2mL, and volume of refill bottles must not exceed 10mL.
