U.K. agency mulls vapor fees

January 11, 2016

The U.K. Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is requesting feedback, until Jan. 29, on a proposal to introduce various fees to cover the MHRA’s costs of processing the notifications to put e-cigarettes on the market and carrying out “post-marketing vigilance.”

The suggested dues include a notification fee of £220 ($320) for a new e-cigarette product, an ongoing annual periodic fee thereafter of £60 and a “notification (modification)” fee of £110 to process a notification for modification to an existing product, to be collected from e-cigarette manufacturers and importers starting May 20, 2016.
