What are TPD and TRPR?

The European Tobacco Products Directive (EUTPD), also known as the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) (2014/40/EU), is a directive from the European Union that regulates the sale and marketing of tobacco and tobacco-related products throughout the EU. Its main objective is to provide a high level of health protection for all citizens in Europe. The TPD has been in effect for all EU Member States since May 20th, 2016.

The Tobacco and Related Products Regulations (TRPR) implemented the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) regulations into UK law, which resulted in changes to certain rules related to vaping products.


What are the TRPR requirements?

  • restrict e-cigarette tanks to a capacity of no more than 2ml
  • restrict the maximum volume of nicotine-containing e-liquid for sale in one refill container to 10ml
  • restrict e-liquids to a nicotine strength of no more than 20mg/ml
  • require nicotine-containing products or their packaging to be child-resistant and tamper evident
