The VITA will take on some of the functions of the now dissolved Electronic Cigarette Trade Association (ECTA).
Second, the Goals of the VITA?
As Canada’s largest trade association representing the industry’s manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers, VITA is committed to working with stakeholders and governments to set and uphold regulations for vaping products in Canada. VITA’s approach is based on credible evidence, science, facts, and logic. In their efforts to responsibly grow and defend the category, the Association commits to collaborating with Health Canada and other regulatory bodies to identify best practices and to inform the development of evidenced-based regulations.
Lastly, What are the Label Standards?
First, e-Liquid shall be regulated under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). As well, the Consumer Chemicals and Container Regulations 2001 (CCCR).
Second, the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act (CPLA). And also the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Regulations (CPLR), apply to all consumer products in Canada.
Lastly, the VITA stamp is given only to participating businesses who display that they are not only legally compliant. But that their products are safe and adhere to a specific level of excellence customers can really trust.
