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 banns 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.

New fees from 1 April 2021

The fee scheme and the regulatory basis for e-cigarettes are changing, and new fee models will enter into force on 1 April 2022.

From 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022, fees for notifications and maintenance will be calculated per day based on the stipulated fee.

When notifying a new product, authorities calculate a fee on the basis of an amount of DKK 101.10 per day. For annual maintenance of a product, they calculate a fee on the basis of an amount of DKK 40.27 per. day.

Nicotine pouches – new rules for sales in Denmark

First of all, you must report to the Danish Safety Technology Authority prior to marketing. This will take effect on 1 July 2021. You can do it via a new form that will be available in the spring of 2021. As soon as the form is ready, it will be submitted on https://virk.dk/ and https://businessindenmark.virk.dk/ as it is right now.

When it comes to nicotine pouches in Denmark there will be also new requirements for labeling and packaging. Health warnings on the products will be necessary from 1 July 2021. Although for products manufactured before 1 July 2021, this requirement will take effect on 1 April 2022.

From 1 April 2021, there will be a prohibition on the sale of tobacco surrogates to the underaged.
