A norm for the vape industry.
With the help of healthcare professionals, consumer cooperatives and FIVAPE, AFNOR is at the origin of the XP D90-300 experimental standard. It is the world’s first standard for vaping products.
It consists of 3 parts:
- part 1 (March 2015) relates to the equipment (e-cig, box, clearomiser, etc.). It specifies the general safety requirements for e-cigs used with e-liquids (with or without nicotine) and does not apply to devices containing tobacco.
- part 2 (March 2015) concerns e-liquids. It specifies the general safety and information requirements for e-liquids (with or without nicotine) and their packaging. It also offers suitable analysis methods.
- part 3 (July 2016) is specific to emissions (material / e-liquid combination).
VDLV e-liquids have been certified by this standard since 2016.
