They often produce guides and resources to help their members stay on the correct side of the law in a market where regulations change frequently.

The newest guide they have produced is a “Guide to regulatory compliance” and you can download the PDF.

What Is Included In The Guide?

ukvia regulatory complianceThe guide covers topics such as:

  • Product Manufacturing – how to compile correct paperwork, manage systems and processes and getting certification.
  • Devices and accessories – states the applicable standards they must conform to.
  • Consumable ingredients and components – discusses e-liquid, nicotine purity and certification.
  • Product performance – this section relates to testing and meeting the TRPR (Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016).
  • New product launches – getting MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) approval.

Obviously there is a lot more detail to the document but it does help to bring together a lot of confusing regulations in an easy to understand way.

My name is Michelle - I am 46 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!
