Toxicological data regarding the product's ingredients.

Regarding toxicological data, you must indicate for each ingredient whether it has carcinogenic, mutagenic, or reprotoxic properties.
For nicotine uptake per dose, you must disclose the proportion of nicotine absorbed by the body from the total amount of nicotine in the product. The proportion of nicotine must be stated as a percentage.

Yes, manufacturers and importers must notify all the products they intend to provide on the Swedish market. Products marketed under different brand names, flavors, or nicotine strengths should all be notified separately and are subject to the six-month waiting period.
Information about notified products will be made public six months after the product was notified to the Agency, provided that the mandatory notification fee has been paid. If you have submitted a launch date further in time than six months, the information will be published when the launch date is reached.
For products already on the market and notified in January 2024, the information will be published when the payment for the notification fee is received by the Agency.

Yes, it is permitted to sell the products to other links in the distribution chain before six months have passed. But it is prohibited by law to start selling the products to consumers before six months have passed since the notification was submitted.
Information about the product's design or packaging shall not be notified to us, and you can therefore change this without notifying us. If information about the product itself changes, such as the brand name, ingredients, or nicotine content, this must be notified to the Agency.
