star this property answer text <p>Vaping products are defined as nicotine inhaling products in the European Union Tobacco Products Directive 2014/40/EU (TPD). The TPD is implemented into United Kingdom domestic law and, after the UK leaves the EU this legislation will remain in force, subject to the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The scope of these amendments is limited to ensuring that tobacco control policy and legislation continue to function effectively after EU exit.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has committed to reviewing the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations (2016), and a range of tobacco legislation by 2021. As announced in the Tobacco Control Plan (2017) the Government will review where the UK’s exit from the EU offers us opportunities to re-appraise current regulation to ensure this continues to protect the nation’s health.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Vaping products are defined as nicotine inhaling products in the European Union Tobacco Products Directive 2014/40/EU (TPD). The TPD is implemented into United Kingdom domestic law and, after the UK leaves the EU this legislation will remain in force, subject to the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The scope of these amendments is limited to ensuring that tobacco control policy and legislation continue to function effectively after EU exit.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has committed to reviewing the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations (2016), and a range of tobacco legislation by 2021. As announced in the Tobacco Control Plan (2017) the Government will review where the UK’s exit from the EU offers us opportunities to re-appraise current regulation to ensure this continues to protect the nation’s health.</p> more like this
