悲伤 laws in New Laws in UK ‘stifling vaping’s success’ in curbing smoking
Posted by: Vapeoholic - Yesterday, 11:17 PM - Forum: E-cigarette News and Regulations - No Replies

Britain’s burgeoning vaping industry is warning of a rise in homemade versions of the liquids used in the devices as new laws governing their strength take effect this weekend.

Vape shops warn that the health of consumers will be put at risk because people will end up buying stronger products from the black market or the internet that do not meet safety standards. There are also concerns that thousands of vapers who use high levels of nicotine will end up reverting to cigarettes now they can no longer buy sufficiently high doses under the new rules.

The Tobacco Products Directive, which came into force on Saturday, is most widely known for prohibiting the selling of cigarettes in branded packs. But it also makes a number of demands on vaping companies and retailers.


The new rules include restrictions on the size of the e-cigarette tanks and refill containers that vapers can use. From Saturday UK vapers can buy devices that have tanks with a maximum size of 2ml – far smaller than most on the market – which means they will have to refill more frequently. They will also be able to buy only small bottles of e-liquids, meaning they will have to carry several around with them during the day.

Smoking numbers hit new low as Britons turn to vaping to help quit cigarettes

“If you are continuing to have to refill, it’s annoying that you now have to carry more stuff with you,” said Richard Hyslop, chief executive of the Independent British Vape Trade Association, which represents about half of the UK’s 1,700 vaping shops. “From a public health point of view, vaping succeeds or fails on the number of smokers who switch to it,” he said. “If you’re looking at vaping compared to smoking, with smoking you just take a cigarette out of the packet and light it. With vaping you’ve got to have all this kit and keep refilling because the tank’s so small and the bottle size is so much smaller.

“There’s already an informal economy in cloned devices and poor-quality stuff. Now people wanting to buy devices with bigger tanks or liquid in a bottle that’s bigger than 10ml won’t be able to buy it legitimately in the UK but will be able to go to grey or informal areas and buy it.”

Around 6% of Britain’s 2.9 million vapers are using e-liquids that contain more than 20mg of nicotine per ml and which are now also banned.

Faced with restrictions on nicotine strength, Hyslop predicted the UK’s vapers would consider a number of options including buying e-liquids in bulk off the internet and looking to dilute it. “Those customers who need a high-strength product will either look to make it themselves, go back to smoking or seek out the informal [black market] economy which is not tested.”

Public Health England recently produced a report suggesting vaping was 95% less harmful than smoking. But vaping’s success in weaning heavy smokers off cigarettes was now in jeopardy, Hyslop said. “Many vapers start on a high level and go down the nicotine strength and end up on zero but heavy smokers now will struggle to make the switch.”

  Johnson Urges FDA Commissioner to Permanently Rein In E-Cigarette Rule

Johnson Urges FDA Commissioner
to Permanently Rein In E-Cigarette Rule

FROM U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs
Thursday, May 18, 2017

WASHINGTON — Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, sent a letter to FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb Wednesday urging him to consider permanently reining in the e-cigarette rule.

“In December 2016 and February 2017, I wrote to Vice President-elect Pence and Secretary Price, respectively, urging the administration to consider repealing or suspending the FDA’s e-cigarette rule. I am pleased that the FDA recently announced that it would delay enforcement of the regulation. Although that is a positive first step, more must be done to permanently rein in this burdensome rule.  As you begin your tenure as Commissioner of the FDA, I respectfully urge you to review the FDA’s e-cigarette regulation so that the industry can continue to innovate and offer vapers an alternative to smoking,” Johnson wrote to Commissioner Gottlieb.

Johnson has raised concerns for a year about the FDA’s e-cigarette regulation issued under the Obama administration, saying it could create undue burdens on small businesses and possibly lead to negative unintended health consequences.

The full letter can be found here and below:




May 17, 2017



The Honorable Scott Gottlieb, M.D.

Commissioner

U.S. Food and Drug Administration

10903 New Hampshire Avenue

Silver Spring, MD 20993

Dear Dr. Gottlieb:

Congratulations on your confirmation as Commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  I look forward to working with you as Congress and the Administration strive to repair overregulation that has expanded the size, scope, and cost of government.

Since May 2016, I have been conducting oversight of the FDA’s burdensome regulation over e-cigarettes. The rule threatens an emerging industry as well as former smokers who have switched to vaping.  The regulation requires e-cigarette manufacturers to complete costly and time-consuming applications to get federal approval to sell e-cigarette products. Based on some estimates, these applications could cost manufactures, many of which are small businesses, more than $1 million to complete. That is a cost that these small businesses cannot afford.

In December 2016 and February 2017, I wrote to Vice President-elect Pence and Secretary Price, respectively, urging the administration to consider repealing or suspending the FDA’s e-cigarette rule.  I am pleased that the FDA recently announced that it would delay enforcement of the regulation. Although that is a positive first step, more must be done to permanently rein in this burdensome rule.  As you begin your tenure as Commissioner of the FDA, I respectfully urge you to review the FDA’s e-cigarette regulation so that the industry can continue to innovate and offer vapers an alternative to smoking.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

Sincerely,



Ron Johnson

Chairman

  New laws on vaping come into effect this week

New laws on vaping come into effect this week
From THE INDEPENDENT

Supporters say the rules are needed to dissuade people from picking up the e-cigarette habit[/font]

New legislation limits the potency of vaping liquids Getty Images

Electronic cigarette users will be hit by new restrictions this week, under a new directive cracking down on all smoking products.

The new legislation, which limits the potency of vaping liquids and reduces the size of refill packets, was introduced last year, but companies were given 12 months to adopt the changes.

Supporters say the new rules are needed to dissuade people from picking up a vaping habit, while critics argue the new laws will put smokers off switching to e-cigarettes.

The legislation includes:

Reducing the size of refill containers
A new maximum size of 10ml will be enforced, meaning users will no longer be able to bulk buy to save money. This could result in price rises.

Weakening e-liquid potency
Currently the maximum strength permitted is 24mg, this will drop to 20mg.

Reducing the size of tanks and cartridges
Cartridges will be reduced to 2ml.

Child proofing measures
Due to the sudden popularity of vaping, there have been concerns that they could become popular with school children. Under new EU regulation, all e-cigs and related packaging must be 'child proof'.

Greater government scrutiny
Manufacturers in the industry will be asked to submit to the government open, detailed and transparent information about what the products they sell do and contain.

Any retailer not complying with the new laws by 20 May will face up to two years in prison.

  Joyetech app??
Posted by: bey1012 - 05-23-2017, 11:12 PM - Forum: The Lounge - Replies (4)

So I think it would be a good idea to have a joyetech app.
Why?
1. Receive notification, no need for email notification
2. The ability to check if a device is authentic or not
3. Allow you to post in the joyetech social
4. Would be easier to navigate for newcomers
5. I think it would also solve the problem of the spam

There are so many functions I can't even list them all the joyetech social has improved a lot over the years is great when I'm sitting at the computer. I am on my phone more then my pc so I think it would be nice to have an app 微笑 大咧嘴 大咧嘴

  Firmware V3.05 for eVic-VTC Mini
Posted by: Anastasia Liu - 05-23-2017, 11:46 AM - Forum: eVic-VTC Mini - No Replies

Dear all,

We're glad to introduce you the new version Firmware for your eVic VTC Mini

What’s new in Version 3.05?

Adjustable Timeout Duration
For safety concerns, if you hold the fire button over a certain time, the device will shout down automatically. Press the fire button 5 times to turn it on again.
Due to different vaping habits, you’re allowed to set the timeout duration from 5 to 15 seconds as you prefer.

Check Preheat Status With Ease
We made it easier to check the preheat status. When the preheat function is on, the wattage icon will be turned reversed to indicate that your preheat is now on. The “W” icon will turned back to normal when you turn the preheat function off.

You can update your device via VT software(V3.05).

Can't wait to have a try?

Keep focusing on us and make your eVic VTC Mini  always up to date.
