    About EFVI

    What is EFVI?

    An opportunity for vapers to directly address the decision makers of Europe so they can choose to ignore our opinion no more. We need to collect one million signatures before the 25th of November 2014, and reach the minimum quota in seven member states.

    What EFVI is not

    EFVI is not an another petition to sign. It allows us to participate directly in the development of EU policies regarding electronic cigarettes.

    Why is EFVI important?

    Once successfully concluded, we will have the opportunity to meet Commission representatives in person and to present our initiative at a public hearing in the European Parliament.

    Members of the citizens' committee:

    Patryk Bełzak (Poland), Kinga Bilau (Hungary), Monika Calvetti-Fürst (Austria), Leo Compas (Netherlands), Ditta Ditewig (Netherlands), John Miles Dolphin (United Kingdom), Marcin Duraj (Poland), Scott Andrew Fitzsimmons (United Kingdom), Stavros Georgalas (Czech Republic), Marcel Göertz (Netherlands), Markus Kämmerer (Germany), Udo Laschet (Germany), Krisztian Pifko (Hungary), Serge Poplemon (Belgium)

    Our initiative at the Official register of the European Commission.

    EFVI is a European wide effort to help save vaping. After the TPD was approved by the EU, we are left with only a short amount of time to fight back before our fate as vapers is sealed. Come 2016, vaping as we know it in the EU, will cease to exist and according to various interpretations of the TPD, everything on the market will be illegal.

    This doesn't just affect EU vapers, American vapers need to be aware that what happens here, will surely be a baseline for what the FDA will present for regulations of electronic cigarettes.

    If you haven't signed EFVI yet and are a citizen of the EU, please take 30 seconds and sign it. Ask your household members, your friends, your family, anyone you can think of that supports public health decisions based on scientific evidence versus knee jerk reactions to protect other interests over our health.

    Please see this thread in order to further our efforts. There are also several countries supporting the dodo box efforts and interested parties can contact EFVI UK directly to get in touch with your areas local rep, and if you don't have a local rep, they can tell you how you can be one.

    Do not let this slip through the woodwork, this is the future we are facing together as vapers, not just in the EU, but in the US and many other nations.
