IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When new vaping liquid regulations were passed throughout the European Union (EU), Black Note did not hesitate to ready five of its top-selling blends for compliance. Known as the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), the regulations demand vaping liquids and other tobacco products meet a number of criteria to align with safety, consumer information and quality assurance standards. Manufacturers must also register products with EU member nations in which their products will be marketed and sold.
Compliance of Five Blends in 15 Countries
Black Note's five real tobacco vaping liquid blends that are now TPD compliant are:
Prelude: Airy and bright Virginia tobacco
Sonata: Robust and intense Cavendish tobacco blend
Forte: Rich and smooth burley tobacco
Legato: Earthy and nutty Italian Kentucky tobacco
Quartet: Smoky and peppery Latakia tobacco
The 15 countries Black Note notified were:
Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Greece
Finland, Denmark, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania
Great Britain, Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, the Czech Republic
Details on the TPD:
Officially known as Directive 2014/40/EU, the TPD is an EU directive that took effect in May 2016. Tobacco product manufacturers were granted a 12-month transitional period to comply with its new standards, although Black Note immediately took action.
Because the company knew it wanted to continue to sell its real tobacco vaping liquids in key markets across the globe, meeting the new TPD standards to continue sales throughout member states in the EU was a high priority.
Five top-selling Black Note blends meet TPD regulations that apply to e-liquids, with regulations demanding the products:
Are available in 10 ml bottles, with childproof, tamper-resistant caps
Contain no more than 2 percent/20 mg nicotine
Conform to packaging requirements for labeling and specific consumer information
Undergo comprehensive testing by a professional team of scientists and analysts, with MHRA notified of the results
Are registered with the EU member countries in which they'll be sold
Testing performed on Black Note vaping liquids ensured the products met or exceeded multiple technical requirements set forth by the TPD. Some of these included:
Nicotine purity testing
Toxicological data on ingredients and emissions
Level of nicotine uptake and measurements used to gauge level of uptake
Technical files and notification packages provided with each product
While complying with TPD regulations required a notable investment of time, resources and finances, Black Note had no doubt the effort was worth it. The company's mission is to help create a smoke-free world by providing the most authentic and enjoyable alternative to smoking, and the only way to fulfill that mission is to ensure its real tobacco vaping liquids remain available to markets across the world.
Black Note makes real tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. The small, family business was founded in 2015 to fill a void in the vaping industry. Not only was the industry lacking a tobacco e-liquid that actually tasted like real tobacco, but it needed a sophisticated product line crafted to appeal to adult smokers and vapers and no one else. Black Note was born, and continues to thrive, using an extensive nine-step creation process to ensure real tobacco taste is the ultimate bottom line.
