Vaporesso is the first refillable vapor product to pass Canada’s Child Resistant Certified (CRC) regulation. The rule was imposed by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA).
Vaporesso, which is owned by the world’s largest vapor company Smoore International, received certification for its ZERO and XROS CRC devices. The GTX TANK 22 CRC version compatible with the GEN S, GEN Nano, LUXE II, and SWAG II mods, was also approved.
Similar to the premarket tobacco product application (PMTA) in the United States, Canada’s CRC-compliance is a federal requirement for all vaping manufacturers who want to continue advertising and selling their vaping products in Canada. The regulation serves to prevent children and teenagers from using vaping products, according to a press release.
“Working closely with the official authorities, Vaporesso is committed to leading the industry into strictly complying with all vaping-related regulations,” the release states. “The brand’s purpose is to prevent people who haven’t reached the legal age from using vaping products while maintaining the industry’s healthy development.”
The brand’s ZERO refillable pod system was compliant with the ISO8317 child-proof standard certification before the CRC Act took effect in the vaping industry. As a result, Vaporesso quickly redesigned the GTX TANK 22 into a new CRC-compliant version launched in 2020.
