Proposed Vaping Products Labeling and Packaging Regulations
By: Joe McCarthy, Lab Service Manager/Senior Regulatory Affairs Specialist, email
Health Canada has published proposed regulations for labeling and packaging of vaping products and vaping devices. These Regulations will define requirements for label warnings, ingredient disclosure, and child-resistant packaging.
The proposed Regulations will,
- Apply to “non-therapeutic” vaping products and vaping devices with ≥ 0.1 mg/mL of nicotine.
- Continue to prohibit vaping products and vaping devices with ≥ 66 mg/mL of nicotine.
- Remove vaping products (e-liquids) from the Consumer Chemicals & Containers Regulations (CCCR) requirements for labeling & packaging.
- Bring vaping devices, currently exempt from CCCR requirements, into the new Vaping Products Labelling and Packaging Regulations.
- Define specific label requirements for symbols, declaration of nicotine content, mandatory nicotine addiction warnings, ingredient disclosure as well as the placement and formatting of these label elements.
- Define specific statements to identify nicotine-free vaping products or devices.
The comment period is open for 75 days and ends on September 5, 2019.
The regulations will come into force 180 days after the final regulations are published in Canada Gazette II.
