Norse Impact AB (publ): No ban on flavored e-cigarettes and new nicotine rules creates opportunities.

There will be no ban on added flavor to e-cigarettes in Sweden, which will have a positive impact on the company’s continued growth. For a longer period, there has been an ongoing political debate in Sweden about introducing a flavor ban for e-liquid that is inhaled through an e-cigarette. Yesterday, the matter was decided, and no such ban will be introduced in Sweden

GothenburgJune 22, 2022

Following this ongoing debate, it has now been decided that there will be no ban. The are several reasons for this, but above all it is because in countries where the ban has been introduced, users are seen returning to the much more harmful tobacco cigarette in higher numbers. There is also a belief that better and more comprehensive studies are needed before a different decision could be considered. The decision means that grumpy impact can now expand with full force towards markets and customers who have chosen to await this decision.

It’s not only as the CEO of a vape company that I am happy with the decision but also because I genuinely feel It is the right decision. We know that we are helping thousands of adults to quit smoking, and the fact that we can continue to be able to offer this option is fantastic. Now there’s only one direction, and it’s full speed ahead, says Andreas ErikssonCEO of Eurobrands.

Updated regulation from the Swedish Chemicals Agency

On 1 July, the regulation on nicotine handling will be updated, a regulation that is handled by the Swedish Chemicals Agency† This means that for any nicotine products containing 1.66% nicotine of their weight, special documentation must be provided at the time of sale and that certain safety equipment must be available. The company has known about this for a longer period and has actively worked to adapt, which means that it will not have a negative effect on the company’s sales. Moreover, grumpy impactas a group, has for quite some time and in collaboration with world-leading manufacturers, developed products that are precisely adapted to the new regulation.

Andreas ErikssonCEO of Eurobrands comments

The updated legislation also has a positive effect on us as a company, we have prepared for a long time, and we can probably say that we are best prepared in the industry. Since we learned of these proposed changes, we have created systems to facilitate the implementation of the required changes. As an e-commerce business, we already hold the solution and it will not affect our customers significantly, at the retail store level, a more substantial change will be required, something that we know our specialty retail stores can handle.
