Vaporizer imports
Just had a interesting conversation with a boarder security officer who informed me that they watch for imports coming from China which is nothing new. I told him I had purchased some vaping products from there and he quickly informed me that right now the mods are being allowed through but vaporizers (tanks) are not allowed to be imported by individuals and will be confiscated by customs and destroyed and they will not notify you that it was done

I think I know what might have happen to my attires now. Anyone else not receive something they ordered that was vape related

Btw this is for Canada and the USA not sure about anywhere else

RE: Vaporizer imports
With more FDA idiotic regs coming along, not being able to get gear from china is an issue.

RE: Vaporizer imports
Well in Canada according to them a mod is ok because it is a battery power source but a vaporizer is designed for vaping liquids I guess. But I can buy same tank from b&m store and that is legal. WTF is that!

RE: Vaporizer imports
Well for an update some stuff can slip through so I will be a little cautious of what I order overseas now.

Guy is probably related to a B+M shop owner! Smile I deal with Customs people everyday...I'll ask if there is any mandate or internal memo direction. Tongue

RE: Vaporizer imports
I have tried to get through the red tape crap online but can't find anything. Would be nice to see something in writing. After what he had told me I truly thought my package was gone. Was quite the pick me up to find it arrived when I got home. Took 2 months 3 weeks to arrive

RE: Vaporizer imports
One of my orders, an RDTA, arrived from China this week and came with a bright yellow label on it stating:

Goods not fulfilling the conditions laid down in Articles 28 & 29 of the Treaty on the functioning of the European Union

I don't know if that was placed on the package by the supplier or by customs. If it was put there by the supplier it would stand out to customs although there is nothing on the label to signify it as vaping related?
