TPD Compliance


TPD Compliance

Our team of experts will make sure your products are fully TPD compliant. We can also provide white label manufacturing for brands looking for ready-available TPD compliante-liquids.

The Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) came into effect on 20th May, 2016. Our compliance and science teams at Rejuice will ensure that your e-liquid company is fully TPD compliant.

Using our extensive analytical laboratory partners, our scientists will ensure your liquid
is TPD compliant and safe for your valued customers,
whilst still maintaining its flavour profile.

Compliance analysis includes comprehensive emissions testing, toxicological and safety analysis. We can provide compliance assessments for liquids. If you only require a specific part of the compliance service, we are also able to offer individual components.

For further information about compliance and pricing, please refer to our TPD Country List and our compliance brochure and contact us today.
