The Swiss Federal Court recently decided to overturn the previous several-year ban on the sale of Vape products. This overturned law prohibits the sale of Vape or Vape oil containing nicotine, and users are allowed to purchase imported Nice Vape products for personal use.
The Swiss Federal Administrative Court (FAC) and the Swiss Vape company InSmoke stood together this time to oppose the ban. According to the website of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation Swissinfo, the government has been working to lift the ban, but the court’s decision will immediately terminate the ban on nicotine.
According to a report by the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation Swissinfo, Judith Deflorin of the Swiss Federal Food Safety Agency (FSVO) told the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SRF): “The FAC’s decision on Tuesday was to import and sell eleaf Vape containing nicotine. The oil is used in Vape, effective immediately.”
It’s a pity that they have to wait so long and consume a lot of energy instead of helping more people replace ijoy cigarettes. (According to the article, Vape users account for only 0.7% of the Swiss population, while France and the UK are about 5%)
Switzerland is not a member of the European Union (EU), so it is not subject to the Tobacco Product Regulations (TPD) of the United Kingdom, France, Germany and the other 25 EU member states on the specifications of e-liquid bottles and cans and the nicotine content. According to a report by the Swiss broadcaster Swissinfo, the number of Vape users in Switzerland is about 0.7%, which is 60,000 out of the country’s 8.4 million population.
The Swiss Vape community group Helvetic Vape is one of the earliest Vape organizations in Europe, established in 2013. This group is actively committed to advocating for the government to relax restrictions on Vape. Helvetic TimesVape recently issued a statement describing the needs of the Swiss company Vape.
International Nicotine Consumer Organization (INNCO), an advocacy group from all over the world, is also located in Switzerland.
