The implementation of the Tobacco Products Directive has turned the e-liquid or vape industry upside down. Literally. The regulations covered not only the sale itself but also the production of e-liquids. Find out what e-liquid bottles requirements must now meet.
If you are in the electronic cigarette industry you should have read the requirements for e-liquid refill containers laid out by the Decision. Article 2 “Requirements for the refill mechanisms” states that the electronic cigarette refill mechanism needs to conform with the following to be placed on the market:
It entails the use of a refill container possessing a securely attached nozzle at least 9 mm long, which is narrower than and slots comfortably into the opening of the tank of the electronic cigarette with which it is used and possessing a flow control mechanism that emits no more than 20 drops of refill liquid per minute when placed vertically and subjected to atmospheric pressure alone at 20 °C ± 5 °C;
it operates by means of a docking system which only releases refill liquids into the tank of the electronic cigarette when the electronic cigarette and refill container are connected.
What does this mean for e-cigarette liquid manufacturers?
If your e-liquids don’t come in cartridges, you’d better measure your nozzles. Or take the easy way out and let us take care of your refill containers.
We manufacture TPD-ready 9mm nozzles built into our 10ml PET bottle caps. The dropper is built into the cap which saves on assembly time. It is also quite a handsome bottle we must admit.
