Proposal for an FCTC Protocol-Compliant Tobacco Control System Blue Print

12 March 2020

Article 8 of the Protocol (entitled ‘Tracking & Tracing’)1 sets forth the principles of a global tracking and tracing system that is independent from the tobacco industry. A common technical blueprint is needed to support parties to the Protocol in the implementation of systems complying with Article 8, which leverages best practices on the different approaches to combat illicit trade, and which are interoperable at the international level. A shared governance framework restricting tasks that may be delegated to the tobacco industry also appears necessary, in order to enforce independence and prevent weak national implementations, which could undermine the security of the global system.
