Public consultation on the possible revision of the Tobacco Products Directive 2001/37/EC

The Tobacco Products Directive dates from 2001 and international and scientific developments as well as the good functioning of the internal market require reflecting whether the Directive still fully responds to the challenges and ensures a high level of health protection.

This consultation is based on a broad spectrum of options based on the existing knowledge base. Several options imply that measures at the EU level can be either binding or non-binding. Any implications relating to the EU competence or to the functioning of internal market, will be taken into account when analysing which particular combination of options is going be proposed. The consultation aims at offering an early possibility for the public to comment on the need to revise the Directive and on different policy options that such revision might involve.

EU citizens, economic operators, non governmental organisations and relevant national authorities are welcome to participate in the consultation.

All interested parties are invited to submit their comments and proposals using the following online form composed by:
Identification of respondent
1. Scope of the Directive;
2. Smokeless tobacco products;
3. Consumer information;
4. Reporting and registration of ingredients;
5. Regulation of ingredients;
6. Access to tobacco products.

The deadline for submissions of comments is 19 November 2010
