This includes the power to seize non-compliant tobacco products and deactivate an Economic Operator’s ID Code.</p><p> </p><p>From 20 May 2019, businesses will be unable to legally buy or sell tobacco products without a valid ID Code. These sanctions will help protect legitimate business from rogue operators selling illicit tobacco products.</p><p> </p><p>HMRC recognises that businesses will need time to become familiar with the new arrangements. During the 12-month sell through period, HMRC will support businesses to understand their obligations, and engage with other enforcement agencies, including Border Force and Trading Standards, to ensure effective and proportionate enforcement of the regulations.</p><p> </p><p>De La Rue (the UK’s appointed ID issuer) published details of the registration process and general guidance on 25 March 2019. The registration process will open on 23 April for manufacturers and large retailers, and on 30 April for all other businesses. This will help to stagger the registration process and facilitate the registration of businesses by the deadline of 20 May 2019.</p>

HM Revenue &amp; Customs (HMRC) will continue to take an active role supporting the FCTC Secretariat’s work programme, sharing expertise and supporting other Parties work towards implementation.</p><p> </p><p>Parliament passed legislation to implement all compulsory elements of the Protocol prior to the UK’s ratification. A track and trace system, as required by Article 8 of the Protocol, is being introduced under requirements of the Tobacco Products Directive 2014/40.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, HMRC continues to maintain its worldwide network of Fiscal Crime Liaison Officers (FCLOs), who work with overseas authorities to tackle tobacco smuggling. They particularly focus on facilitating upstream seizures of illicit tobacco destined for the UK and remain an integral part of HMRC’s anti-illicit strategy.</p>
