Be Abreast of the Regulations for E-Liquids!
E-cigarette liquids are classed as chemicals. New health laws and the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) means that manufacturers of e-cig juice / electronic cigarette liquid must include extra product information on their labels. The e-cig labels regulations include the need to display health warnings and more, and may well involve a tactile warning triangle (a raised area). Failure to comply with the regulations for e-liquids can be a serious offence.
As e-cig packaging is so small, this can be a real challenge for manufacturers. However as always, at CS Labels we have the perfect solution!
Let’s look at the main requirements:
Each unit packet and any container pack must include a list of all set out in descending order by weight, nicotine content, delivery per dose, batch number, keep out of reach of children warning. Also manufacturers must print a health warning “This product contains nicotine which is a highly addictive substance” on both the front and back of the unit packet and any container pack. This must fill 30% of the area, calculated in relation to the area of the surface concerned when the pack is closed and must be in black Helvetica bold type on a white background. The font size must ensure that the text covers the greatest possible are of the surface area reserved for it and should be at the centre of that area.
