Vaping products including vaping devices, vaping parts and vaping substances (ICS: 65.160)
Vaping Products Labelling and Packaging Regulations (69 pages, in English and French)
The proposal sets out requirements under both the authority of the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act (TVPA) and the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). The provisions proposed under the TVPA would apply to vaping products and their packaging that are intended for retail sale or otherwise furnished to a consumer in Canada. The provisions under the CCPSA would apply only to vaping products that are consumer products, that is, those not subject to the Food and Drugs Act.
The proposed Regulations would include new labelling requirements that aim to prevent the public from being deceived or misled about the health hazards associated with using vaping products. In addition, new proposed labelling requirements concerning nicotine concentration and a list of ingredients will help consumers to make informed choices about the vaping substances they use. The proposed Regulations would also require such products containing nicotine to display a toxicity warning. Finally, the proposal will mandate child-resistant containers for refillable vaping devices and their parts, as well as for all standalone containers of vaping substances containing nicotine. The proposed Regulations would implement measures that are similar to those taken in the European Union for vaping products containing nicotine both with respect to a health warning regarding the addictiveness of nicotine and information regarding the toxicity of nicotine. Additionally, the proposed child-resistant requirements for refillable devices and for standalone containers of vaping substances containing nicotine are similar to the controls currently in place in the European Union. In the United States, a health warning, regarding the addictiveness of nicotine is required for vaping products containing nicotine, and standalone containers vaping substances containing nicotine must be child-resistant.
