Update: Thank you so much to everyone who took the survey – we had a massive response in a very short time!
The survey is now closed. The winners are Peter Cobb, Michel Finney and Nuria Mary. All winners were randomly selected using Random.org.
You can see the final results in infographic form here:
The EU commission has been pushing for regulations which will amount to a ban.
But few attempts have been made to measure the consequences of a ban.
Can you help out by taking a quick survey?
The survey is simple and easy to complete, and should take just one to two minutes of your time.

With the EU failing to publish an official update on their position, we are still confused about where the EU stands.
But two key points are:
1. The EU’s position that ecigarettes should deliver a regulated dose of nicotine.
ECITA are not sure what the EU means by this, but the technology to delivery a set dose of nicotine with every puff has not yet been invented.
In addition, it is completely against the way people both vape and smoke. People take the right amount of nicotine for both themselves and the current state they are in. By delivering a regulated dose of nicotine (if it proves possible) ecigaretes could become useless for current users.
2. The Continued Possibility of a Ban On Refillable E-Cigarettes
One of the stranger possibilities to come out of the compromise between the EU commission and the EU parliament is that if three countries in EU ban refillable ecigs, they will be banned in the whole of the EU. See Clive Bates’ guest post: Making Sense of the Proposed New E-Cigarette Regulations on the Save Ecigs blog for more details.
