New Zealand | Vaping Regulatory Authority update

Your substances


The Vaping Regulatory Authority has extended the deadline for companies to provide information demonstrating their vaping products are compliant with current regulations by a week to 12 noon Friday 9 December. 

The Authority earlier wrote to 60 companies about 2,149 vaping products that had been notified for sale in New Zealand, where further evidence is required to confirm they comply with the law. 

Companies were required to provide product safety information following a review of the 8,083 vaping substances able to be sold in New Zealand. 

‘For the majority of the products reviewed, no issues have been found, but in some cases, information provided by the manufacturer or importer indicated that they could include prohibited ingredients or they could have nicotine salt levels that exceed the legal limit’, says Vaping Regulatory Authority Manager Matthew Burgess. 

‘Following the review, companies have withdrawn notifications for 340 vaping products, meaning they can no longer be legally sold in New Zealand. We will be publishing a list of products that are no longer notified on the Ministry of Health website shortly.’
