E-liquids are subject to the CLP Regulation, which applies directly to substance manufacturers, importers of substances or mixtures, formulators, end users, distributors and retailers, and to the producers and importers of certain specific articles.
They are required to communicate the classification of identified dangers to other stakeholders in the supply chain, including consumers.
The general obligations of each stakeholder :
All the stakeholders in the supply chain for substances or chemical mixtures must do the following, or check that the following has been done :
• classification of the product (e-liquid),
• packaging of the substances or chemical mixtures in compliance with the rules set out in Regulation CLP 2018.
For nicotine, we have opted to use the future harmonised classification provided by the 11th ATP (Adaptation to Technical Progress). As a result, the ‘death’s head’ pictogram appears on bottles dosed at 19.6 mg/ml and over, not on all bottles dosed at 6 mg/ml and over.
Any additional classifications may be indicated for flavours, and professionals must take this into account for each reference.
The European regulation (Regulation (EC) No. 1169/2011) on information for consumers about food products requires us to add a list of allergens that may be contained or present in the product..
New pictograms are being shown on labels; please read the new labels carefully. Our new Safety Data Sheets by flavour and by nicotine content will also be updated.
Please contact your account manager if you require any further information.
