ENSP-ECTC Illicit Tobacco Trade Webinar

ENSP is pleased to host the webinar “Illicit Tobacco Trade” that will be held on 19 November 2020, from 13:00 to 14:30 CET, as part of the ENSP-ECTC Conference – The Online Edition

The illicit tobacco trade transforms cigarettes into a cheaper and more accessible solution, resulting in more people smoking, which has negative health consequences and associated higher healthcare costs. The illicit tobacco trade also has implications for tax policy: not only does it deprive governments of tax revenues; it also undermines the public health role of tobacco taxation aimed at curbing smoking.

During the fifth session of the Conference of the Parties to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control FCTC by Decision FCTC/COP5 (1) of 12 November 2012, The Protocol to elimination all types of tobacco illicit trade was adopted. It was negotiated by the Parties to the WHO FCTC over several years and entered into force on 25 September 2018. The first meeting of the Parties to the Protocol was celebrated, at Geneva, on 8 – 10 October 2018

The new treaty aims at eliminating all forms of illicit trade in tobacco products. It provides tools for preventing illicit trade by securing the supply chain, including by establishing an international tracking and tracing system, by countering illicit trade through dissuasive law enforcement measures and a suite of measures to enable international cooperation.
