MHRA Regulatory Update
Time: 15:05 - 15:20
Date: Tuesday 7th December 2021
The MHRA is the competent authority for a notification scheme for e-cigarettes and refill containers in Great Britain and Northern Ireland and is responsible for implementing the majority of provisions under Part 6 of the Tobacco and related Products Regulations (TRPR) and the Tobacco Products and Nicotine Inhaling Products (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020. The TRPR introduced rules which ensure i) minimum standards for the safety and quality of all e-cigarettes and refill containers (otherwise known as e-liquids) ii) that information is provided to consumers so that they can make informed choices and iii) an environment that protects children from starting to use these. This session will present recent data and insight in to what the MHRA does and how they do it. Specifically focussing on: I) Post Brexit E-cigarette notification systems, requirements and challenges in the UK II) Overview of E-cigarette Yellow card data 2016-2021 III) Disposable E-cigarettes products and compliance with UK notification requirements IV) Supporting enforcement in a multi-agency framework.
