Companies selling electronic cigarettes, vape devices, pens, cigalikes, tanks, pods, disposables and Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTA) are required to prove their safety and compliance in the markets in which they are sold.

Electronic cigarette and vape devices need to be notified under Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) before they can be legally sold in the UK and the EU. A full regulatory compliance test of the product, including the battery, needs to be undertaken.

Key elements of device testing include:

  • an emissions test for degradant products
  • test of metals and silicates
  • a nicotine consistency test

After successful testing, we file a TPD notification for your product to sell in Europe.

5. Future proof your compliance

Work with excellent scientists who provide a first-class service. Recently, we were contacted by a company who had used a cheap tick-box compliance service. Two years later, the regulators informed them the tox data was incomplete and they couldn’t sell their products. The original company would not put it right – they didn’t know how to. We stepped in, waived our usual fees and put everything right. As a result, the company has spent more money on compliance and lost valuable revenue. Buy right first time.
