Wales

               

Brief Overview

The UK is, as far as we are aware, the only country in the world where e-cigarettes are comprehensively and effectively regulated at this time. The UK is currently the most forward-thinking and vape-friendly region in the world.

E-cigarettes are classified as consumer products in Wales. Although in 2015, Wales implemented an indoor vaping ban in public places and this does not seem to be redacted as of yet. With the more recent acceptance and growth of vaping and the implementation of proper regulation throughout the UK this ban may have become more lenient, but we urge you to check with each venue before using your e-cigarette.

Wales has a thriving vaping scene and retail stores can be found in abundance throughout the more populated areas of the country.

Wales 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.

The UK aim to lower smoking rates to 12% by 2022, and with the upcoming Brexit there are reports that the UK will remove the EU TPD regulations to aid further in the growth of the e-cigarette industry, along with the Department of Health re-examining the possible regulation of e-cigarette products as official smoking cessation devices.
