Order amending the Order on the notification of tobacco products and herbal products for smoking and the notification of novel tobacco products, etc.
On 11 November 2021, the Danish Parliament presented the legislative proposal amending the Danish Health Act, the Electronic cigarettes, etc. Act and the Tobacco Products, etc. Act.
The legislative proposal amends the fee schedules for products covered by the Electronic cigarettes, etc. Act and the Tobacco Products, etc. Act.
The legislative proposal contains a number of provisions enabling the Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs to lay down detailed rules. The amending Order implements the requirements for fees in this area.
The amending Order contains rules on the amount of the fees being set on the Danish Safety Technology Authority’s website, as well as information on when and how fees are due and a provision on a de minimis threshold for charging with respect to tobacco products.
For novel tobacco products and herbal products for smoking, the amending Order also contains rules on fees in connection with the annual maintenance. The fee exemption rule is removed.
