ITV (http://www.itv.com/news/granada/update/2014-08-20/lancashire-firms-legal-challenge-over-e-cigarette/) today reports -

A Lancashire based electronic cigarette company has become the first to challenge European Tobacco Products Directive.

"Totally Wicked" from Blackburn claims it would place e cigarettes at a competitive disadvantage.

“Many of the regulations contained within the Tobacco Products Directive would result in electronic cigarettes being subjected to a stricter regulatory regime than some tobacco products. Not only is Article 20 therefore disproportionate, we believe it is also contrary to established EU law."
