Vaping Goes Mainstream: Implementing Regulatory Testing

As vaping goes mainstream and regulations on the products is creating increased scrutiny, new companies are developing testing procedures.

Manufacturers in the relatively new and, up until now, unregulated electronic cigarette industry have had little need for analytical testing until recently. As vaping has become mainstream, the market for e-cigarettes has come under increased scrutiny. In May 2016, the EU implemented the updated Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), which governs the manufacturing and selling of tobacco products, to include e-cigarettes and e-liquids. In 2016 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also updated the Premarket Tobacco Application (PMTA) to include vaping products. These updated directives and regulations require manufacturers to register and rigorously test their products if they want to continue to market them. As regulations continue to evolve, the industry is looking to advanced instrumentation and analytical testing to comply with new quality standards.

Careful control of input materials during e-liquid manufacturing ensures that only ingredients of the highest purity are used, verifying that consumers get what they paid for as well as safeguarding them from potential health risks. To protect consumers, the new EU guidelines dictate that e-cigarette manufacturers must list all ingredients contained in, and emissions resulting from, the use of their products, along with information on the nicotine doses and uptake when consumed under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions. To meet upcoming regulations, including the first new nicotine dose assessment and emissions testing requirements, manufacturers can now choose from a range of techniques for collecting and analyzing nicotine and other potentially undesirable compounds.
