Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products

Solutions to the problem will vary by country as the problem manifests itself differently. For that reason, our work to address the issue is specifically targeted.
The governments that are Parties to the FCTC are developing a Protocol on Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products aimed at creating an international regulatory framework for addressing this global problem. The Protocol will have to be ratified by the Parties, following which it will be a legally binding treaty for implementation into their national laws.
We support the development of a Protocol since it should help to provide international standards for the measures needed to more successfully address a problem that is affecting a significant and growing number of countries around the world. We welcome the inclusion in the draft Protocol of provisions to ensure that all manufacturers conform to an international standard for tracking and tracing the movements of their own products, without prescribing a specific technology. This flexibility is vital to ensure that each government can determine requirements
that are appropriate to its local circumstances, and to ensure that all manufacturers, large and small, are able to meet the international standards to be set by the Protocol. To meet the intended Protocol requirements, and to meet the needs of early adopter governments and
regions, such as the European Union, they are working to enhance existing track and trace capability. During 2008, we established a global track and trace project team to put in place operational and technical systems that will meet the evolving track and trace standards which
are likely to be required by the Protocol.
The project will enable the tracking of our tobacco products from our warehouses to the point where they are sold to the first external customers.
