Blinc’s Co-Founder and CEO Arnaud Dumas de Rauly is the Chairman of the International ISO committee on Vaping Standards, Chairman of the European CEN Committee on Vapor Products, former President of FIVAPE in the EU, and a renowned expert in inhalation technology, regulations, manufacturing and distribution.
We look forward to working closely with Jupiter and bringing additional value and expertise to their extensive network of clients. I am excited to see what the future of cannabis vaping landscape holds when two companies like Jupiter and Blinc work closely together to help shape the new standards and set an example for regulatory compliance as a whole.
Arnaud Dumas de Rauly, Blinc’s Co-Founder and CEO
In addition to working on bespoke products together for key clients, Jupiter plans to leverage Blinc’s extensive quality control, regulatory and compliance expertise to remain at the forefront of vaporization legislation, ensuring safe and compliant consumption across the United States and internationally.
In January, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ended its ‘state of emergency’ general public advisory against vaping, due to the sharp decline in e-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury cases being reported. The focus and scope of efforts to address the unregulated businesses and unlicensed storefronts is still an important factor in maintaining safety in the industry. The Blinc and Jupiter partnership represents an opportunity to accelerate and foster industry innovation and collaboration beyond vaporization.
