Question for written answer E-004537-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Bendt Bendtsen (PPE)

 Subject:  Traceability system for tobacco products
 Answer in writing 

The rules of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/574 of 15 December 2017 on technical standards for the establishment and operation of a traceability system for tobacco products, requires in Article 6(1) that manufacturers must mark each unit packet produced in the Union with a unique identifier.

What does the Commission intend to do in order to ensure that no tobacco products produced in the EU are prevented from being imported into non-EU countries as a result of the new Track and Trace rules, which require all EU-manufactured products to show a mandatory unique identifier?

Does the Commission intend to take steps to suspend said requirement for products manufactured for import into countries which, as of 20 May 2019, do not allow imports of tobacco products produced in the Union as a result of the EU requirement of a unique EU identifier?
