Vape Compliance at Broughton  

Protect your brand reputation and business revenues by ensuring your vape products are compliant and safe. Ensure products aren't removed from retail shelves, confiscated by trading standards, or destroyed as illicit or counterfeits that shouldn't be on the market.

Our Vape Compliance Package offers a quick review of vape product labeling and packaging, nicotine strength, fill volume, and screens for banned ingredients to confirm the safety and quality of vape products. We generate a Certificate of Analysis that verifies that the parameters assessed comply with UK or EU regulations that can be used with customers and regulators to demonstrate responsible product due diligence.

We have years of next generation nicotine experience across analytical testing, scientific and regulatory consulting, and post-market regulatory support. Our UKAS accredited in-house laboratory and all our testing processes are governed by our Quality Management System accredited to ISO 17025:2017 and compliant with GxP Guidance. The combination of our scientific expertise, analytical excellence, quality assurance, and unrivaled customer satisfaction is why many of the world's largest companies and leading brands choose to work with us.
