 COUNTRY COMMENTS  (Source(s): Legal and other research, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_cigarette#Current_legal_status_by_country )

 

1. In Australia, the Federal Department of Health and Ageing classifies every form of nicotine, except for replacement therapies and cigarettes, as a form of poison.[49][50] However, in the state of Victoria, the Therapeutic Goods Administration said there were no laws preventing the importation of e-cigarettes bought over the internet for personal use, unless prohibited by state and territory legislation.[51]

Nicotine for personal use allows for up to 3 months supply per delivery, and no more than 15 months supply imported over a 12 month period.  

    • A spokeswoman for the Therapeutic Goods Administration said e-cigarettes were not a safe alternative to normal cigarettes and were not approved for therapeutic use. ''Except in therapeutic preparations [such as] nicotine replacement therapies, nicotine is a schedule 7 poison because it is harmful to human health. Consumers are warned of their danger to health and encouraged not to purchase these harmful cigarette substitutes,'' she said.  However, she said there were no laws preventing the importation of such products bought over the internet for personal use, unless prohibited by state and territory legislation.

    • Do not resell our e-liquids. It is illegal in Australia

    • You cannot import more than 3 months worth at a time.

    • We believe this applies, but have no legal basis for that belief.  From: http://www.daff.gov.au/aqis/import/biological/therapeutic-foods-dietary   Commercially manufactured and packaged therapeutics are permitted entry without an Import Permit if they meet the following requirements:

      • the article is for human therapeutic use only, and
      • the product is imported into Australia (whether personally or by post) by a person who intends to use it for their own personal use, and
      • the product is commercially prepared and packaged (eg. capsules, tablets, vials for injection, liquid, powder*,ointment, etc). This includes commercially packaged probiotics eg Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium spp., and
      • the product is imported in a quantity to provide no more than three months supply.

 

2. In Switzerland, sale of nicotine-free electronic cigarettes is legal. Use and import of electronic cigarettes containing nicotine is legal, though they cannot be sold in Switzerland. Max 150 ml of e-liquid per shipment.

 

3. In Finland, any products that contain nicotine can only be bought from within European Economic Area (EEA). 


4. In Malta,  October 2, 2012:  [ source: http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20121002/local/authority-warns-on-e-cigarettes-labelling.439362 ]

ECBlend website address is located on all ECBlend Branded bottles:  Under contact us is our complete address and telephone information.  ECBLEND LABELS DO NOT MEET THE CURRENT MALTA REGULATIONS AS IS - YOU MUST KEEP YOUR PACKING MATERIALS WITH YOUR BOTTLES AT ALL TIMES.  Even this may not be sufficient to meet the laws of your country.  Check with them.  You are importing these products to your country AT YOUR OWN RISK.  - No Exceptions - 

The Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority warned today that unless e-cigarettes are used to deliver a medicinal against nicotine addiction, they cannot be considered as a medical device. When a manufacturer markets e-cigarettes against nicotine addiction, the proper data on the doses of nicotine delivered to the blood must be shown.

The Authority said most of the e-liquids used in the electronic cigarettes are mixtures containing various concentrations of aromatic substances, glycerol, propylene-glycol and other substances. There are refills which consist of hazardous substances such as nicotine. When a hazardous substance is present, the refilling E-liquid should be classified and labelled according to the appropriate legislation in terms of the Dangerous Preparations Directive.

The label of the e-liquid has to include the name, address and telephone number of the supplier, the nominal quantity of the substance or mixture in the packages made available to the public, the chemical name and identification number, and, where applicable, hazard pictograms, signal words, risk phrases and safety phrases.

Accumulators and battery packs must also be appropriately marked.

DETAILS

The label of the E-liquid shall include the following information:

• The name, address and telephone number of the supplier  (Our website is on all ECBlend Branded bottles: The website meets this definition.  This may not be sufficient for your country.)

• The nominal quantity of a substance or mixture in the packages made available to the general public (unless this quantity is specified elsewhere on the package)

• Product identifiers – chemical name and identification no. (e.g. CAS, EC)

• Where applicable, hazard pictograms, signal words, risk phrases (hazard statements), safety phrases (precautionary statements) and supplemental information required by other legislation.

In addition, most of the e-cigarettes contain a lithium-ion rechargeable battery; according to the Batteries and Accumulators Regulations, 2007 (Legal Notice 311 of 2007), accumulators and battery packs shall be appropriately marked with the symbol indicating “separate collection” for all batteries, accumulators and battery packs - the crossed-out wheeled bin.  ECBlend batteries DO NOT meet this requirement.  IMPORT HARDWARE AT YOUR OWN RISK.  We are not even sure what 'seperate collection' and 'crossed-out wheeled bin' mean in Malta.  Please contact your local customs for information.
