Zinwi receives an e-liquid production license

Zinwi Bio-Tech has been granted a license to produce electronic cigarettes (e-liquid category) in China, becoming one of the first manufacturers to do so under the country’s new regulatory framework.

In March, the State Tobacco Monopoly Administration passed the Electronic Cigarette Administration Measures, which came into effect on May 1. Under the new rules, a production license issued by the STMA is a prerequisite for the incorporation of a company involved in the manufacture of vapor equipment, e-liquids or e-cigarette nicotine.

Businesses applying for the license must provide documentation demonstrating financial and manufacturing fitness, among other evidence.

Zinwi Bio-Tech was established in 2016 and is headquartered in Guangming District of Shenzhen. A high-tech enterprise integrating R&D, production and sales of e-liquid, the company ships over 2,000 tons of e-liquid and approximately 1.3 billion pods per year. Products are exported to Europe, America and Canada, the Middle East, Russia and other destinations.

In a press note, the company said its commitment to quality is demonstrated by numerous accreditations, including ISO9001 quality system, CNAS national laboratory and GMP certifications.
