The European Commission has officially registered a European Citizens’ Initiative which calls for Article 20 of the EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) to be replaced by “bespoke legislation which clearly sets vaping products apart from tobacco and pharmaceutical products”.
The initiative “Let’s demand smarter vaping regulation!” was submitted by Dustin Dalhlmann of the European Vape Alliance (IEVA) and Mosè Giacomello of Vapitaly. It also calls on the EU authorities to set up new legislation based on “mandatory compliance”, including safety and manufacturing standards for e-cigarette devices and e-liquids.
Giacomello told ECigIntelligence they are proposing to the European Commission the creation of a Vaping Products Directive (VPD).
