The Tobacco Products Directive 2014/14/EU (TPD) introduced new rules for nicotine containing E-cigarettes and refill containers (Article 20) which ensure minimum standards for the safety and quality of all vape products. Anyone who manufactures or imports these products or who re-brands any product as their own must submit information about their products through the European Common Entry Gate (EU-CEG) notification portal, along with complying with all the rules named in Directive.
What is CLP?
The CLP Regulation (Classification, Labelling and Packaging) is a European Union regulation from 2008, which aligns the European Union system of classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures to the Globally Harmonised System (GHS). It is expected to facilitate global trade and the harmonised communication of hazard information of chemicals and to promote regulatory efficiency. It complements the 2006 Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation (EC No 1907/2006).
What do TPD and CLP regulate?
- Product restrictions
- Packaging and labelling restrictions
- Obligation to notify
- Advertising, promotion and sponsorship
- Sales channels
