TPD, which stands for Tobacco Products Directive, is a directive of the European Union who legislates the sales of all tobacco related products across the EU. These legislations have remained in place in the United Kingdom since departing the EU in January 2020.
So, what are these TPD rules and how do they affect you?
Any E-Liquid containing nicotine cannot be sold in a bottle that exceeds 10ml.

All bottles of e-liquid must use child and tamper proof caps.
E-Liquid must not contain any caffeine, taurine, or colourings. Any colouring must be natural.
