The Law

The sale of liquid nicotine, including in liquids in electronic cigarettes, is illegal under NSW Poisons legislation (Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Regulation 2008) without approval from the NSW Ministry of Health unless the product is listed or registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods, where other restrictions apply.

The sale of electronic cigarettes that make a therapeutic claim and are not listed or registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods is illegal under national and NSW Poisons legislation. There are currently no electronic cigarette products, with or without nicotine, on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods.

From 1 September 2015, it is an offence to sell e-cigarettes and accessories to minors under the age of 18 under the Public Health Tobacco Act 2008 (the Act)

From 1 December 2015, many of the provisions that apply to tobacco products in relation to display and advertising of e-cigarettes and accessories will also apply to e-cigarettes and accessories under the Act.

The sale of electronic cigarettes which contain nicotine and the sale of liquid nicotine, including in liquids in electronic cigarettes, is illegal under NSW Poisons legislation (Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Regulation 2008) without approval from the NSW Ministry of Health unless the product is listed or registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods, where other restrictions apply. The Ministry has not issued any approvals for the sale of liquid nicotine for use in e-cigarettes.

Nicotine, other than for approved therapeutic use or in tobacco prepared and packed for smoking, is a Schedule 7 dangerous poison under the national Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons (Poisons Standard). This makes nicotine a Schedule 7 dangerous poison in the NSW Poisons List.

The unauthorised supply of a Schedule 7 poison for human use in any product, including electronic cigarettes and e-liquids, is an offence under clause 20 of the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Regulation 2008 (NSW). Anyone who sells electronic cigarettes containing liquid nicotine or e-liquids containing nicotine without approval from the NSW Ministry of Health may be prosecuted with fines of up to $1100 for each sale

It is important to know that electronic cigarettes often contain nicotine even when they are not labelled as such. It is an offence under clause 7 of the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Regulation 2008 (NSW) to sell a Schedule 7 product containing nicotine which is not labelled and packaged as a Schedule 7 dangerous poison. A Schedule 7 dangerous poison must havethe strength and quantity of the poison (nicotine) clearly written on the main label of the package and the immediate container/s. Anyone who sells electronic cigarettes or e-liquids that contain nicotine but are not labelled as such may be prosecuted under both clause 20 and clause 7 of the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Regulation 2008 (NSW).

Update 21/09/2016 : It has come to our attention from our customers that there are various websites claiming to sell Nicotine eliquids in Australia? It is still illegal and the law has not changed. These companies are very very untrustworthy and quite often can be companies from overseas just taking advantage of Australians not being able to sell Nicotine in Australia. It is also illegal to take money on an Australian website in Australian Dollars and drop ship eliquids with Nicotine from an overseas website. Steer clear of companies like that as they are just making a profit ontop what you can pay direct with overseas companies personally. The law states selling or supplying eliquids in Australia by an Australian Person or an Australian Company is illegal and makes no reference or difference where the eliquids come from or where they are shipped from. It is the act of selling or supplying eliquids with Nicotine in Australia by an Australian person or an Australian Company that is the criminal offence. Legitimate e-commerce websites in Australia will have an ABN, Postal Address/Delivery Address, Contact Phone Number and will also state what currency the website uses. If you see a website in Australia selling Nicotine that has NO ABN, NO Contact Number, NO Postal Address/Delivery Address and website built this year. It is a very very good chance that you are going to get ripped off and not supplied any eliquids with Nicotine. These sort of companies are "blow ins" and are usually gone within a month or two when the law catches up to them.
 
Please support established Australian Companies that follow the law. These Australian Companies will be the ones that will provide support for many years to come.
 

Liquid nicotine and personal importation for use in electronic cigarettes
Department of Health Therapeutic Goods Administration 4th June 2014
 
Some recent media reports about electronic cigarettes suggest that the importation of nicotine in personal amounts is exempt from regulation. This is not always the case.

The media reports appear to be in reference to the personal importation scheme https://www.tga.gov.au/personal-importation-scheme for therapeutic goods under the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989. It should be noted that there are important limitations to this scheme in relation to the importation of electronic cigarettes:
Under state and territory law, nicotine (whether or not it is for use as part of an electronic cigarette) is a Scheduled 7 poison.

Liquid nicotine is a dangerous poison and an emerging cause of inadvertent poisoning overseas.
Any product or substance that is a therapeutic good and personally imported under the Act must also be legal within your own state or territory.

You should therefore check whether nicotine can be possessed or supplied in your own state or territory.
If the liquid nicotine is for a therapeutic use (such as smoking cessation), it is a prescription medicine. To import a prescription medicine you need to possess a valid prescription written by a registered Australian medical practitioner. Under most state and territory laws only a medical practitioner can only write a prescription for a medicine, or prescribe a substance that is for therapeutic use.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration has not assessed any of these products for therapeutic use and due to Australian Law Southern Cross Vapers make no claim that vaping will help you give up smoking cigarettes.
