About the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD)

All nicotine-containing products which are sold in the European Union are required to comply with the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), with the exception of products which are considered medicines. The Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) regulates the notification and sale of combustible tobacco, heat-not-burn (HnB), novel tobacco products and electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS).

For ENDS products, the TPD requires manufacturers or importers to submit a notification to each member state, 6-months in advance of placing the product on the market. Each member state has discretion in its implementation of the Directive and so state-by-state variations exist.

Included in the notification, the manufacturer is required to provide:

  • Chemical analysis of product emissions
  • Declaration of ingredients included in any e-liquid
  • Toxicological review of each of the ingredients
  • Sample packaging bearing the appropriate warnings
  • Statement on the manufacturing process
  • Manufacturer/importer declaration assuming responsibility for the product

Inter Regulatory offer a complete TPD notification service for all European Member States from product testing through to notification and post-marketing obligations.

Manufacturers and importers are also required to provide, on an annual basis, the sales by volume for each of their notified products and to ensure that appropriate product vigilance is in place in the event of an adverse event.

Our in-house experts have been involved in TPD from the onset and continue to be involved in the European and International standardization processes which are ongoing and are perfectly placed to advise you on your products needs.

If you are looking to place products on the market within the European Union or if you have existing products on the market and are looking to add to your range, contact us today to see how we can help simplify the process in a cost-effective manner.

  • 20mg/ml
