European Union adopts tobacco track and trace system

The European tobacco track and trace system became operational on 20 May 2020. Under this new system, national authorities will be able to monitor the movements of tobacco products across the legal supply system in Europe. The move is intended to help reduce the illicit trade in tobacco products, to protect the legal tobacco trade and to protect public health.
