The new regulations

DE NYE REGLER

Denmark has got new regulations for electronic cigarettes and accessories. This means that it is legal to sell electronic cigarettes and refillable containers with nicotine in Denmark, if the products have been registered with the Danish Safety Technology Authority.

The regulations apply for all types of electronic cigarettes which can be used for liquid with nicotine. Both electronic cigarettes for single-use and electronic cigarettes, which can be refilled with nicotine-containing liquid. If the products have not been registered with the Danish Safety Technology Authority, they are illegal to sell. There is, however, an exemption if the products have been approved as medicinal products, before they may be marketed in Denmark.

Electronic cigarettes and refillable containers with nicotine, which are already marketed on 7 June 2016 and meet the requirement of the new legislation, must be notified to the Danish Safety Technology Authority no later than on 20 November 2016.
