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>
