Danish ban on flavoured e-liquids
Following the lead of some countries which has banned flavoured vapes before (e. g. Estonia, USA, Finland, and Hungary) the Danish government also prohibits the production and sale of flavoured e-liquids.
New legislation bans manufacturing of any flavoured e-liquids other than tobacco and menthol. E-liquids with other flavourings that were manufactured before 1 April 2021 can only be sold within 1 year, that is until 31 March 2022.
Obligatory TPD registration of non-nicotine e-liquids in Denmark
According to new legislation in Denmark e-cigarette liquids that do not contain nicotine must be analyzed in terms of emissions. Refill containers without nicotine must be notified to the Danish Safety Technology Authority prior to marketing. This has taken effect on 1 April 2021. However, the requirement will not apply until 1 October 2021 for containers marketed before 1 April 2021.

Requirements for the standardized design of packaging
As stated there will be requirements regarding the standardized design of individual packages and any outer packaging for electronic cigarettes and refill containers with and without nicotine.
The specific requirements regarding the color of packaging and text as well as text font and size are not clear so far. Danish authorities will establish these rules in the nearest future.
So far, Danish authorities do not have any plans regarding approving the packaging during the TPD notification (as it is for example in the case of Portugal). What is important, however, Denmark will be the first country to require an EC-ID number on the packaging.
New requirements on individual packages and any outer packaging for electronic cigarettes and refill containers with and without nicotine will take effect on 1 October 2021. For products manufactured before 1 October 2021, the requirement will not apply until 1 October 2022.
