Non-nicotine e-liquids and e-cigarettes must be TPD notified in Germany. Recently, German authorities have passed a new law on non-nicotine e-cigarette products. New regulation equals nicotine-free vaping products with standard e-liquids containing nicotine. This means a major change for both manufacturers and retailers of e-liquids. Check what do you need to know to maintain your sales in Germany.
Non-nicotine e-liquids and e-cigarettes must be TPD compliant in Germany
The reason for these changes is the amendment to TobakerzG, passed on 23 October 2020 which equates nicotine-free e-liquids with those that contain nicotine. Annex 2 to TobakerzV, which regulates the composition of e-cigarettes and refill containers, from now on also applies to e-cigarette liquids without nicotine. Accordingly, there is a need for action by retailers to maintain the marketability of their nicotine-free products. The passed law can be found here.

Nicotine pouches are gaining more and more popularity also in European Union.What exactly are nicotine pouches and how do they relate to the e-cigarette and e-liquid industry? What is the difference between nicotine pouches and snus? You will find the answers to these and other questions regarding nicotine pouches in the article below.
1. How nicotine pouches are different from snus?
Traditional snus (brown snus, snuff) is a moist tobacco product popular in Scandinavia. It looks like tobacco wrapped in a cellulose bag, resembling a tiny bag of tea. Sometimes it is referred to as ‘snuff’. Traditional product is made of a mixture of dried tobacco leaves and salt, which is moistened with hot steam. The finished product contains about 50% water and should be kept in the fridge. There is also a version of it without cellulose packaging, which is called “loose snus”. Usually, snus is applied by placing between the lower or upper lip and the gum. As result nicotine from tobacco is absorbed into the body from the oral cavity. Moreover, the nicotine content in snus is higher than in a traditional cigarette. Although nicotine pouches resemble traditional snus in some ways, there are significant differences between those two products that need to be discussed.
2. Nicotine pouches (non-tobacco snus)
Nicotine pouches (white snus, or non-tobacco snus) derives from traditional, brown snus. The only difference between the two is the nicotine carrier. Tobacco snus contains tobacco leaves, while nicotine pouches are filled with cellulose. Powdered cellulose is soaked in a mixture of pure nicotine, aromas and pH-alignant (to make product pH more similar to the natural pH of the oral cavity). The mixture is additionally moistened with PG, however, the nicotine pouches are a little dry. It means that the user may feel the nicotine effect and a taste a few seconds after placing a pouch behind a lip.
Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) is a directive covering all Member States of the European Union which places limits on the sale and merchandising of tobacco and tobacco-related products in the EU.
The products regulated by the directive include cigarettes, roll-your-own tobacco products, pipe tobacco, cigars, cigarillos, smokeless tobacco products, electronic cigarettes and refill containers as well as herbal products for smoking and novel tobacco products.

The first thing that usually comes to mind when it comes to nicotine is tobacco, regardless of whether it is smoking, vaping, or pharmaceutical nicotine. As nicotine is obtained mainly from tobacco, this is a reasonable association and thus usually nicotine products are subject to the same regulations as tobacco products. Usually, but not always – there is a way to produce non-tobacco nicotine which is also called synthetic nicotine. (more…)
