TPD Directive

TPD or Tobacco Products Directive, was an initiative created by the EU to regulate the sale of tobacco products and came into law in 2016. After which all retailers were required to comply.

Vaping falls under the directive due to the use of nicotine in vape products and e-liquids, any products not submitted and approved by the MHRA would be illegal to sell.

IVG products are TPD compliant, all our products adhere to TPD regulations, including e-liquids which are capped at 20mg in a 10ml container, and all larger e-liquids that are nicotine free.

All e-liquids and products supplied by ACME Vape Limited have been submitted to the MHRA for notification and have passed and declared TPD compliant. We have all certificates and documentation on file for any product we stock. If you need more information with regard to TPD/TRPR you can email us at and we will reply as soon as possible.
