Notification on electronic cigarettes and refill containers

Both manufacturers and importers of electronic cigarettes and refill containers are required to notify and pay a mandatory fee for each product intended to be available to consumers on the Swedish market. Each year you must also fulfil the annual reporting obligation for your notified products.

Product notification and annual reporting obligation

E-cigarettes and refill containers intended for consumers in Sweden must be notified to us before they can be sold. Each year there is an annual reporting obligation. In Sweden, both manufacturer and importers of the product must submit the product notification and fulfill the annual reporting obligation.

Fees for product notification

We charge mandatory fees:

  • SEK 10,500, for the notification of each brand and type of e-cigarettes and refill containers. It is the manufacturer or importer that notify the product that must pay the fee:
    • The first time a product is notified to Sweden.
    • When a product is relaunched on the Swedish market after it has been withdrawn from this market.
    • When a new notification is submitted for a rejected product.
    • When a substantial modification is submitted, which modifies the composition of a notified product in a way that affects the previously provided information.

We will send you a payment instruction the month after the notifications has been submitted in EU-CEG. This payment instruction will state how much you must pay and to which account the payment must be made. The payment must be made within 30 days from the day the payment instruction was issued.
