TRACEABILITY

CECCM believes that the tracking and tracing of tobacco products helps fight the illegal trade by identifying the point of diversion from the legal supply chain. To be efficient a track & trace system should allow the tracing of products across borders and therefore any legislation should only prescribe recognized international standards and ensure that global operators are free to choose their preferred system and suppliers. This will reduce costs and guarantee free competition while offering a state of the art tool for control by law enforcement agencies.
