EAEU countries to keep records of tobacco products and substances emitted by them

The Eurasian Economic Commission's Council approved the form of a report on the composition of tobacco products sold in the Eurasian Economic Union countries during the calendar year and the substances emitted by them.

The approved form of the report will allow the EAEU countries' healthcare authorities to obtain information from tobacco product manufacturers on their composition, ingredients added to tobacco, non-tobacco ingredients used, and substances emitted by them.

It is planned to develop an electronic system ensuring the confidentiality of the transmission and storage of the data presented in the report and put it into operation in each EAEU state. The first reports will be prepared the next year after the electronic system is launched in the Union countries.
