Further delay to UK e-cigarette regulations

| April 9, 2013

The UK government’s plans to license e- cigarettes have been delayed further, according to a story in the Times Of London.

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency began a consultation in February 2010, but it said in March 2011 that it would take another 18 months to gather greater evidence on the health risks of using these products and the consequences of regulating them.

Now it emerges that whereas the government had expected to announce its regulatory plans this spring, it is no longer in a position to meet that deadline.
