Experts say - Vapers Are Safe To Use Regulated Vaping Products

Health officials have hit back over claims vaping is responsible for an outbreak of respiratory disease in the US and have reassured the public that regulated products continue to be safe to use.

In the UK all of Vape Directs products are TPD Compliant so you can be assured our products are all official brands and safe to use. 

What does TPD mean? 

TPD stands for Tobacco Products Directive. Although designed to regulate the tobacco industry, the bill also deals with electronic cigarettes. You can find the e-cig specific regulations in arcitcle 20 of the RPD

TPD Article 20 has become the basis of new UK vape laws and regulations.

Companies which notified the MHRA (The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) about their existing products were allowed an extra 6 months to sell through all their stock.

All recent studies point to the fact that vaping is better than smoking. With Public Health England stating that electronic cigarettes are 95% safer than smoking and Cancer Research UK supporting vaping in the fight against smoking relating diseases.

Linda Bauld, Professor of Health Policy at the University of Sterling (Scotland) has been vocal regarding the impact of negative headlines and the impact they have on the vaping industry. She said;

“Since I last wrote about e-cigarettes in this column one year ago, headlines about the dangers of these devices have continued to appear and show no sign of abating. The result is clear. More people believe today, compared with a year ago, that e-cigarettes are as harmful as smoking. In fact, these incorrect perceptions have risen year on year.
