Are parallel imports illegal? Is advising them illegal under UK law?

Posted 2nd Jul 2021
I'm sure most of people are aware of sites that sell electronics or phones without VAT or import duty, usually based in asia and ship them to UK without any warranty, for a better deal than any british retailer can ever do.

I understand the amount of potential scams and faulty products that can come this way.

But as a legal issue, are there clear laws specifying that importing such items for personal use isn't right?

Any answers appreciated
