Tobacco Products Directive
The Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) applies if the eCigarette manufacturer doesn’t make medical claims and the following criteria are satisfied:
- Maximum cartridge / tank size 2 ml
- Maximum refill container volume 10 ml
- Maximum concentration 20 mg/ml nicotine
In this case, the European Member States are required to apply the measures set out in the TPD from 20 May 2016. The Member State’s nominated Competent Authority will be responsible for regulation and oversight. There is no requirement for Notified body involvement with eCigarettes regulated under the TPD.
