Interim Measures for Vaping Devices
By: Ivy Tang, Product Safety Specialist, email
Interim measures are currently in place for vaping devices with refillable parts and/or tanks holding e-liquids. These devices are exempt from CCCR 2001 (including child-resistant packaging and hazard labelling) to allow time for the industry to produce or source devices that would meet such requirements.
All vaping devices sold, manufactured, advertised, or imported in Canada must continue to comply with Sections 7 and 8 of the CCPSA, meaning they cannot be a danger to human health or safety.
Alongside quality control plans, manufacturers should consider the health and safety standards used throughout the manufacturing process. Health Canada also encourages vaping devices and their batteries receive UL-certification in order to maintain electrical safety.
Regulations specific to vaping products, including refillable vaping devices and tanks are expected to be published by Health Canada late 2018/early 2019.
