WHO FCTC launches report on good practices to combat tobacco smuggling in free zones

With only a limited number of product inspections carried out inside free zones, many customs administrations now require that tobacco products carry a special declaration with detailed information that would enable joint investigations, effective risk management and electronic recordkeeping, as highlighted in a report published by the Secretariat of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC).


The report, Examples of current practices on the implementation of Article 12 (Free zones and international transit) of the Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products, will be launched on 18 March 2021 during a technical webinar sponsored by the Secretariat of the WHO FCTC.


The report focuses on implementation of Article 12 of the Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products , with a view to showcasing international good practices in the operation and control of free zones.
