Belgium’s new TPD rules

24 June 2020

Companies with new e-liquid products launching soon in the Belgian market are now required to complete additional testing.

For product ranges sold across Europe, it has been standard practice to test just the highest nicotine strength for emissions and use that data to support the notifications for all other weaker nicotine strengths. 

This week, Belgian authorities now require each individual nicotine strength of an e-liquid to be tested separately for Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) notification in their country. The change has been made because they feel that too many parameters can distort the result.

To date, this new requirement has not been rolled back to cover historic filings, however this is a situation we will be watching closely.
