Norwegian authorities bans private import of pharmaceuticals

Yesterday Norwegian newspaper VG reported yesterday that the Norwegian Medicines Agency have implemented a total ban on importing pharmaceuticals from October 1st... that's today:
It will now be illegal for Norwegians to order medications online sent from abroad, according to the Norwegian Medicines Agency. This applies to all prescription drugs and non-prescription (with one exception: if the drug is Norwegian with Norwegian label).
This means, it will not be possible any more to buy medication from pharmacies online, for example from our neighbours in Sweden, which I believe have been quite common up until now. There is a long list of stuff that we can no longer get shipped (from what I understand there are no changes in rules if one brings the products in themselves when coming from abroad): 
  • Products containing pharmaceutical substances. 
  • Products containing herbs.
  • Products containing vitamins in daily doses exceeding maximum limits
  • Products claiming to be medicinal
  • Products for injection, excluding products which are CE marked medical devices or products regulated by the regulations on tattooing
  • Products for use in eyes
  • Homeopathic remedies. 
  • Drugs. These are also governed by regulations on drugs and is not allowed to import privately. This also includes synthetic substances similar substances listed on the drug list, but not covered by drug regulation. 
  • Doping assets. These are also governed by regulations on what is doping and is not allowed to import private. 
The Norwegian Medicines Agency have said earlier that e-liquids are classified as pharmaceutical products, so it certainly looks like this might stop us from buying e-juice online. However, the Norwegian Union of Vapers (NDS) quickly reacted to the news and started asking around. Actually the new rules were published some days before VG wrote about it so they've been working on it for some days now. Anyway, it looks now like e-liquid will NOT be affected by the new rules. The rules were made to stop the import of fake pharmaceuticals and it has not been the intention to stop the import of e-liquid, like many of us feared when we first heard about these new rules. There has been a lot of uncertainty.... and panic in the NDS Facebook group the last days but hopefully this info posted by NDS will help people sleep:
It has not been possible to obtain any written statement on whether e-liquid is affected or not. However, we have access to information from multiple credible sources that indicate that e-liquid is not going to be affected.
 
This means that we will continue as before even after 01/10/15 and look forward to constructive cooperation with Norwegian Health authorities on the regulation in Norway. We hope that the opportunity to be a pioneer in harm reduction and tobacco injury prevention will
soon be seized.
So, for now: The rules for importing e-liquid to Norway are still the same today as they were yesterday, we're allowed to import e-juice for 3 months use ... as long as we're not enjoying it too much, and use it for smoking cessation only :) Thanks a lot all of the people in NDS and others who have worked with this case.

  1. My ex husband and I have been divorced now for two years. He remarried one year ago. Last year him and I were still talking, he was engaged at the time and I didn't know. We were meeting eachother at the park, talking, emailing, and went out to dinner one time. The entire time he told me I was the love of his life and that he didn't love this woman he is now married to. Of course my response to him was that he was also the love of my life as well. I was the one that asked for the divorce, and it was the biggest mistake of my life. This man is the only man I've ever truly loved and I am unable to love another man. When his fiance found out we were talking she broke all communication..Changed his phone number, deleted his email account etc. I've had no way of contacting him and I also have changed my number so he doesn't have anyway of contacting me either. I feel desperate, I feel like a crazy person because I can't stop these racing thoughts that control my life every single day. I just need to know how he feels. The very last time we talked he told me he could never love another woman again, and now he's married. What do I do? I cry myself to sleep every night. I can't listen to music, I'm afraid to go places for fear I'll see him with her. And when I do go to various places I think of him...Everything reminds me of us. I just want him back, he's my everything!! I love him so much!!!, i never wanted to check the internet for spell casters because i believed that they are all scam, but a child hood friend of mine told me to give it a try and contact a spell caster which i did, i contacted Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack and was doubting his powers, because he assured me not to worry about anything that all will be well, he did the spell for me and now my ex husband is back in my life and our marriage is saved with the help of Chief Nwaluta, here is his email if you are going through cases like this { Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com }. Thank you chief i really appreciate.
