After the e-cigarette management measures released in March, the General Administration of Market Supervision also issued a national standard for e-cigarettes some time ago, it can be said that the e-cigarette industry is about to usher in a regulatory storm.
That in this national standard, there is a point that is particularly noteworthy, that is, the provision of no nicotine, that is, nicotine also belongs to electronic cigarettes, and ah, from October, no nicotine e-cigarettes can be sold on the market. The national standard stipulates that electronic cigarettes are used to produce aerosols, electronic delivery systems for people to smoke, etc. The nicotine free electronic cigarettes are also included in the definition of electronic cigarettes, and it is also clear that the cured material should contain nicotine, and the nicotine free electronic cigarette products are not allowed to enter the market for sale.
In simple terms, this means that no matter whether there is nicotine in electronic cigarettes, that is, nicotine will be defined as electronic cigarettes, and ah, not allowed to be sold in the market, which is mainly for those who claim that they do not contain nicotine, harmless to health, and even added. Chinese herbal ingredients focus on traditional Chinese medicine concept of electronic cigarettes.
Before this, the market of non-nicotine e-cigarettes are mainly herbal atomization products, the so-called herbal atomization refers to the extraction of ingredients from non-tobacco plants for atomization, when this product was just launched, the main concept is that it does not contain nicotine, not addictive, and because it contains Chinese herbal ingredients, Some products will claim that they have the function of lowering fat, helping sleep, supplementing qi and blood, etc., and the main health brand. Before this, many e-cigarette companies have set foot on a new track, hoping to avoid the supervision of e-cigarettes through the concept of zero-Ni herbal materialization, and this time the introduction of the national standard is undoubtedly a blow to new and old enterprises that want to take this road.
In addition, the national standard also mentioned that electronic cigarettes and smoke bombs should have a closed structure to prevent artificial filling, which is aimed at the popular open electronic cigarettes in the market before, for example, after the use of ah, can be added to the tobacco oil. Electronic cigarettes, for example, after taking a puff can highlight more smoke than ordinary electronic cigarettes of large smoke electronic cigarettes, then these electronic cigarettes for young people to play novel ah, after the formal implementation of the standard, the same will be banned.
E-cigarettes attract young people, there is another characteristic is a variety of flavors, this point, the e-cigarette management methods released before also mentioned, the General Administration of Market supervision put forward that in view of fruit, food, beverage and other flavored e-cigarettes and non-nicotine e-cigarettes have a strong attraction to minors, easy to induce minors to smoke, The standard clearly states that the characteristic flavor of the product should not present any flavor other than tobacco. That is to say, in the future, flavored e-cigarettes such as fruits will be banned on the market, which will effectively prevent new consumer groups who are curious about the taste of e-cigarettes.
In addition to the above three points, the national standard has also made clear provisions on electronic cigarette leakage, child lock, atomization area, temperature, etc., and has restricted many aspects of electronic cigarettes. That attention, the release of the national standard for electronic cigarettes, ah, will be in October 1 this year. After the formal implementation of the standards, the sale of electronic cigarette products on the market must meet the national standards, and before this, the state has set aside a five-month implementation transition period for electronic cigarette companies, because it is necessary to consider that these companies need to design products according to the standards, complete the production transformation, and apply to the relevant departments for product testing and technical review. Of course, in the end, we should remind everyone that smoking is harmful to health, and smoking is not encouraged, including electronic cigarettes.
