So what exactly is TPD?
From November 2016 E-cigarettes need to follow the TPD law and regulations.
The Tobacco Products Directive 2014/14/EU (TPD) introduced new rules for nicotine-containing e-cigarettes and refill containers (Article 20) which ensure minimum standards for the safety and quality of all vape products. Anyone who manufactures or imports these products or who re-brands any product as their own must submit information about their products through the European Common Entry Gate (EU-CEG) notification portal.
The TPD does not cover nicotine-containing products that are authorised as medicines.
