MHRA TPD Update Email #4: Fees and IDs

Hi, this post is purely a copy/paste of the 4th MHRA update email for those who haven't yet signed up for updates (please see end of email). #VapeOn


Welcome to the fourth update email from MHRA’s e-cigarettes team.

In this update we inform you about the publication of the fees regulations, as well as provide you with more guidance on the Submitter ID process. This follows our email last week where we updated you on the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 (the regulations that lay the Tobacco Products Directive into UK law from the 20th May 2016).

The Electronic Cigarettes etc. (Fees) Regulations 2016
Today saw the publication of The Electronic Cigarettes etc. (Fees) Regulations 2016 (SI No. 521) which sets out the statutory fees relating to E-cigarette products.

Based on feedback to our consultation on fees earlier this year, it became apparent that a higher number of notifications are to be expected than initially estimated. Due to this expected increase in notifications, we have been able to reduce the cost of fees compared to our original proposals.

The new fees are as follows:

Annual Fee£60

In our next update email we will be providing further information on what constitutes a ‘substantial modification’, as well as technical and submission guidance.

Submitter IDs

Further to our last email on Submitter IDs (a Submitter ID is required in order notify your products on the European Common Entry Gateway), you can download the registration form for a submitter ID here or using the link below:

Provided you have first created a European Commission Authentication Service (ECAS) account (which you can do here) you can complete the registration form for a Submitter ID, and return it to the European Commission. Once your form has been submitted, the Commission will start the process of assigning you an ID.
Get in touch

As ever, if you have any suggestions for anything you would like to see in future emails, or would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact

If you have any technical enquires about the notification process, please send them to our official enquiries inbox: .

Thank you for your time in reading and sharing this email with your contacts. We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
