THE EUROPEAN SYSTEM OF TOBACCO TRACEABILITY AND SECURITY FEATURES IS OPERATIONAL

On 20th May, the new system came into operation.  This means that consumers will soon see new traceability markings on the packs, together with the required security features.  The markings will enable national authorities to track and trace the movements of these packs across the legal supply chain in the EU.  The EU-wide system for tobacco traceability already started operations on 10th May, and economic operators (producers, distributors, shop owners etc.) across the EU have begun to register themselves, and their facilities in the system.
