Nicotine Concentration in Vaping Products Regulations
By: Ivy Tang, Product Safety Specialist, email
Per the new Nicotine Concentration in Vaping Products Regulations (NCVPR), all vaping products intended for retail in Canada (excluding those issued under the FDA), must not contain nicotine in a concentration that exceeds 20 mg/mL. This concentration is applicable to both freebase nicotine and nicotine salts. The concentration may be determined using ISO 20714, E-Liquid- Determination of nicotine, propylene glycol, and glycerol in liquids used in electronic nicotine delivery devices- Gas chromatographic method. Prior to this regulation, the maximum concentration of nicotine in vaping products was 66 mg/mL.
The NCVPR was published on June 23rd in the Canada Gazette Part II. The regulations come into force 15 days after this date.
