    Default UK regulation of eliquid

    The Totally Wicked website is showing this message:

    POISONS ACT 1972

    It has been brought to our attention by the Trading Standards service that nicotine sold in liquid form should not be more than 7.5% weight in weight. As a precaution, we have removed our fluids with nicotine, the 36MG, 24MG, 18MG, 11MG and 8MG ranges, until we have been able to have these tested and they comply with the standards set out.
    If you wish to read more about this then please follow the following link : http://www.devon.gov.uk/poisons_notes_of_guidance.pdf



    It looks like UK authorities are starting to clamp down on nicotine liquid, this might be a good time to stock up from the sellers who are still trading.

    I can't find any definition of weight in weight, presumably it's a ratio of 7.5% of whatever the weight.

    Why Devon CC? Any idea?

    It sounds like 7.5% of the weight of the liquid can be nicotine. We buy it in mg of nic per ml of liquid, a ml is approximately the same as a mg so it's possibly 7.5% of a mg.

    7.5% = ???

    I don't know, I'm rubbish at maths ...

    I'm wondering how this can be a problem.
    I have no idea what our liquids weigh, but in comparison water is 1000mg per ml.
    The x-high strength Wicked is 36mg/ml, so if the liquid weighs in anywhere near water, that should work out to 3.6%.
    Is it simply a question of lab testing and documentation? In that case, it shouldn't be too much of a problem...

    This is from the factory where the Janty liquids come from and I know a lot of brands buy their liquid there.

    A ml is approximately a gram.

    Angry Missing something wicked

    I went online to buy some for christmas and found the same notice.

    Other suppliers are still selling e-liquid, so I don't know what exactly is happening.

    Maybe Jason is being super carefull, or something nasty and bureacratic is coming round the corner. I hope not coz I'd hate having to go back to analogues. I haven't bought any since I got my super mini....

    If anyone knows whats happening please share...
