Maximum Concentration of Nicotine in Vaping Products
By: Ivy Tang, Product Safety Specialist, email
On December 19, 2020, the Canada Gazette Part I published the proposed Concentration of Nicotine in Vaping Products Regulations. This proposed regulation would cap the nicotine concentration at 20mg/mL for vaping products manufactured or imported for sale in Canada. The current limit of 66 mg/mL would remain for products intended for export. This new proposed limit applies to both salt and non-salt forms of nicotine and would be in line with the maximum nicotine levels currently in British Columbia, Nova Scotia, the EU, and specialty stores in Ontario.
The proposed regulations would be implemented under the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act and the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act. The former will establish the new maximum concentration, and the latter will amend the Vaping Products Labeling and Packaging Regulation so the nicotine concentration statement on packaging cannot exceed 20 mg/mL.
The regulations come into force on the 15th day after publication in the Canada Gazette Part II.
