All VDLV products sold in France and/or Europe are in compliance with this regulation, whether on the level of labelling, packaging and declaration obligations. The TPD is European and is imposed upon each Member State of the EU. Each country must then transpose it into national legislation, which explains that the differences in interpretation and application from one country to another.
With the application of the TPD, all nicotine-containing products must be declared on a European notification platform. This declaration is made for each flavour, each nicotine strength and each variation in PG/VG content. In France, the cost of each notification is €295, not counting composition and vapour emissions analysis costs to be performed for each product. We have therefore been compelled to limit the number of our products and to eliminate the lists of variations in PG/VG and nicotine strength.
