The proposed, 1 January 2021 plan to prohibit vapers from importing nicotine for personal use has been deferred. See TGA announcement here
Originally planned for 1 July 2020, then 1 Jan 2021, this has now been delayed again, this time to allow the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to consider the latest amendments to the Poisons Act as it awaits submissions to its Interim Decision on the scheduling of nicotine.
At this stage there is no indication that the ban will not proceed at some time, currently the TGA is suggesting June 2021 for more defined regulation for the requirement of prescriptions for nicotine.
