|This is a repost of the latest MHRA email on e-cig/vaping regs for those not subscribed to the mails.|
Hello from the MHRA e-cigarettes team.
Thank you to all of you that have worked hard to complete your submissions and send them to us via the EU-CEG. We have seen a huge spike in activity recently, and yesterday received 1,000 notifications in one day!
Although most of you have managed to make submissions successfully, we have had reports that some are having difficulty with the EU-CEG, and are worried that due to issues with the portal, submissions may not be able to be entered in time to take advantage of the transitional period deadline.
In light of this, we have issued the following guidance:
As the official transitional period deadline of 19 November is a non-working day (Saturday) we are prepared to accept submissions on the next working date.
Therefore, all submissions received by 23:59 on Monday 21 November 2016 will be judged as if they were submitted on 19 November.
If you are unable to make a submission before the deadline due to a technical issue with the portal or for another reason, please send an email to TPDnotifications@mhra.gsi.
We encourage you to keep trying to submit your notifications, and expect that all submissions will be made as soon as possible after that date.
Any other queries
As ever, if you have any technical enquires about the e-cigarette notification scheme under the Tobacco Products Directive, or the work of the MHRA, please send them to our enquiries inbox: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time in reading and sharing this email with your contacts. We look forward to hearing from you.
