Brexit troubles for UK vape trade have many possible components

Vaping companies in the UK could struggle to find foreign markets if the country leaves the European Union next year in a “no deal” Brexit, senior lawyers are warning.

And the difficulties could be compounded where components or ingredients manufactured in one country are used in products made in another. Although the UK produces e-liquid, very few e-cigarettes have parts made in Britain.

Like other industries, e-cigarette and e-liquid manufacturers currently benefit from the EU’s 35 trade agreements with other nations, 45 more of which have been partially applied, with another eight in the pipeline.

Britain would, potentially, need to renegotiate these if it leaves the EU without an on-going deal in place.
