Both document control and supervisory control visits will be made at manufacturers, importers and retailers, who market electronic cigarettes and refill containers with nicotine. Some products will also be extracted for tests at external laboratories.
The Danish Safety Technology Authority has the right to be given all necessary information in relation to the control.
Ban on marketing
In cases where a product may pose a serious risk to the health of human beings, the Danish Safety Technology Authority can and will require that the product is either recalled from the market or is withdrawn from the consumers.
If the control shows that a product has not been correctly registered or does not comply with the existing regulations on marking, quality and safety, the Danish Safety Technology Authority can ban marketing of the product.
Control from other authorities
The consumer ombudsman will control that the general regulations for marketing are complied with. Moreover, the Danish Working Environment Authority and the Danish Maritime Authority will control that electronic cigarettes are not used in public means of transport, taxis or day care centers with children and young people under the age of 18.
