    Today, 13 March 2012 a Judge in The Netherlands has legalized the import and sale of Electronic cigarettes and liquids in The Netherlands in a civil court case 414117/KGAZ 12-209 of the court in 'S-Gravenhage

    Judgement is as follows:

    Judge allows e-cigarettes to be imported from outside the EU to be sold in The Netherlands and prohibits the Dutch Government from actions against the import and sales (for which the government based itself on the pharmaceutical law).

    The Judge has ruled that electronic cigarettes are not to be considered pharmaceutical!

    The Dutch Government is further fined for a total of 1467 EURO + 131 EURO in costs and 68 EURO for notary costs of the judgement.

    Electronic cigarettes are here to stay! Spread the word :)

    A copy of the court ruling would be even better.

    The members of the esigbond started this procedure against the Dutch government's previous decision. It proves that companies have to stick together in their respective organisations and act, because only actions give results. Within the esigbond we will soon publish a comprehensive list of self regulations for all members of the esigbond.

    esigbond and are in close contact and will most likely find common ground in adhering to the same self regulating rules for e-cig business in the whole of Europe.

    Here's the English translation of the court order:
