These great products and services have made Aspire globally famous, but at Aspire we are never satisfied with merely great. The Atlantis series in 2014 brought the vaping industry into a new era, allowing vapers to experience sub-ohm vaping for the first time a trend which continues up to the present day. While the Cleito tanks have made vaping so much easier with its simplicity of design and high performance.

Aspire TPD Compliance Update

Aspire TPD Compliance Update

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like it or not, the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) is with us and here to stay. The directive was initially issued on 20th May 2016, but didn’t come into force until 20th May 2107.Manufacturers and traders were given a one year transition period to change and sell products/stock that didn’t meet the requirements of the TPD, thereafter all products in the market had to be TPD-complaint on or before 20th May 2107.

Now that deadline has passed, people in the vape industry must take extra care in complying with the TPD regulations. So what have we at Aspire done so far?

We were advised by a TPD expert that after the 2017 deadline all the products must be TPD-complaint, including packaging, labeling, the new limit of 2ml capacity etc. Manufacturers and traders must use the correct packaging according to the country of sale. They are unable to change labels or the stickers as the batch number will not match the sales data supplied to the respective governments. If manufacturers and traders use the wrong TPD compliant packaging, customs in the EU can confiscate the products and destroy them. If the products do make it through customs and are stocked the shops then the local TPD enforcement personnel can also confiscate take the stock and impose fines on the retailers. Therefore manufacturers and traders may only approve sales through the correct channels.

Aspire obviously complied with the TPD procedures and during the one year adjustment period, changed our packaging, and the designs of our products to make them 2ml TPD complaint.Items within our range that were affected, such as the Cleito, the Cleito120, ET-S glass version, the Atlantis, and the Nautilus were all redesigned to comply. We have also registered and received MHRA notification for 113 of our products.

Furthermore, different member states within the EU may have additional requirements when applying the TPD into their own laws; some countries may require extra registration or confirmation under their respective governments. To date, we have received confirmation from UK, Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Holland, Spain and Germany.

We are working closely with our TPD expert to get more new products registered as required.

Stay tuned and check back regularly for further updates.

Aspire is committed to customer safety and the importance of battery safety in the E-cig Industry

 

aspire 18650 battery

It has long been a concern not only among the reputable manufacturers like Aspire, but also of the authorities such as the FDA on the safety of batteries in the e-cig industry.

So many times have we heard reports of batteries catching fire, causing fires and even exploding in use!

These battery issues can be found in reports on toys, electrical tools, mobile phones, in fact almost anything that requires a rechargeable battery.

Probably the latest battery ‘bandwagon’ for people to jump on recently has been that of the e-cigarette. Reports of e-cigs catching fire in peoples’ pockets and purses, incidents of them catching fire whilst charging, and batteries exploding causing property damage, these reports of end-user incidents have been put down to numerous factors, such as faulty batteries, user misuse or actual fake batteries.

On the 19th April this year SEVIA USA (of whom Aspire is a founder member) attended a seminar that was held to address these battery issues and to find ways to regulate the battery industry. The FDA itself is also in the process of compiling rules and regulations concerning batteries. Though there are not currently any standing  rules or regulations concerning batteries for the E-cig industry, Aspire is obviously looking forward to reasonable rules and regulations in this industry for the sake of, and to ensure the safety of its customers.

The transcript of the seminar can be found here:

Chinese Aspire physical stores are proliferating quickly

Since Aspire started opening up the Chinese Domestic market in 2014, there are now near 100 Aspire exclusive shops in more than 15 provinces, across 30 cities. Aspire shops are proliferating quickly and attracting more and more domestic business partners to open Aspire franchised shops.

Whether in a supermarket, or on busy streets, you can always see Aspire there.

Aspire physical stores

Being well informed on vaping and experienced in the products are the primary conditions for franchisees to open a domestic Aspire shop. All staff in the physical shops will receive professional training on products and the brand from Aspire HQ before they start working. This is not only to communicate our brand culture, but also to ensure that our customers can understand more about vaping and be able to make a well informed choice of the product that suits their needs best.

We are now working on a unified management in store decoration and in the future, all Aspire shops will be modeled in accordance with the provisions of the brand and style of decoration. Aspire HQ will provide design and technical support to the shop owners, ensuring that Aspire will be more professional and prominent in the market!

aspire to be great and professional

The domestic vaping marketing is developing at an amazing pace, and Aspire shops are expanding continuously. We may even consider opening worldwide franchised shops in the future to provide customers with a direct and more efficient service.

FDA may postpone enforcement of all future Deeming Regulation compliance deadlines

FDA compliance deadlines delay

A letter from FDA indicated a delay on future Deeming Regulation compliance deadlines by 3 months, the reason for the extension stated in the letter is that;

” This extension will allow new leadership at the FDA and the Department of Health and Human Services additional time to more fully consider issues raised by the final rule that are now the subject of multiple lawsuits in federal court. ”

 

We are not sure whether the Trump administration will repeal the current Deeming rule or not, but it is good to see changes are moving in the right direction. Not only does that three months give the vaping industry a breather, it also gives the administration the necessary time to amend the unfair regulations on vapor products. Aspire has been working closely with U.S. law firms to ensure we could be the first group to get the latest information.

Good evening,

 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is announcing information about the outstanding compliance deadlines related to the May 2016 final rule that extended the agency’s authority to additional tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, cigars, hookah tobacco and pipe tobacco, among others.

 

In lawsuits regarding the final rule, the FDA has stated that it will defer enforcement of all future compliance deadlines under the rule for electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) such as e-cigarettes, cigars, and pipe tobacco for three months. In light of this, the FDA also intends to defer enforcement of all future compliance deadlines for all categories of newly regulated products for three months and plans to issue guidance describing its position in the near future.

 

This concerns deadlines set for May 10, 2017, or later, including those for manufacturer submission of cigar warning label plans, registration and listing, ingredient listing, health documents, substantial equivalence exemption requests, substantial equivalence applications, premarket tobacco product applications (PMTAs), and harmful and potentially harmful constituent (HPHC) reports.

 

This does not apply to provisions of the final rule where compliance deadlines already have passed, such as mandatory age and photo-ID checks to prevent illegal sales to minors.

 

This extension will allow new leadership at the FDA and the Department of Health and Human Services additional time to more fully consider issues raised by the final rule that are now the subject of multiple lawsuits in federal court.

 

Please contact me with any questions.
