E-cigarettes are currently legal in Spain, although in June 2017 the country passed The Royal Decree 579/2017, which is new legislation pertaining to the manufacture, advertising and sale of vaping products in Spain that basically translates the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) into Spanish regulations.
Spain has also implemented a total smoking ban in all indoor public places such as bars and restaurants, and certain outdoor public places such as schools, hospitals, playgrounds and parks. This ban also applies to e-cigarettes.
The Spanish government has also prepared a new bill, which if implemented would prohibit all online sales. This will be detrimental to the industry due to the shortage of retail outlets in certain areas of the country.
We highly recommend registering for updates as this page will be updated when any new laws and regulations come into practice.
The Royal Decree 579/2017 is very similar to the EU TPD, 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.
