All you need for TPD compliance under one roof, wherever you are

The Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) officially came into effect on 19th May 2019 and affects all organisations within the tobacco supply chain.

Operations must be fully compliant with the TPD legislation or risk facing financial and economic consequences.

All parties or economic operators who are in any way connected to the supply chain of tobacco products from the point of manufacturing up to the final delivery to the retailer must comply. These include:

  • Distributors
  • Wholesalers
  • 3rd Party Contracted Logistics Service Providers
  • Retailers
  • Mobile Van Sales Operators (Direct Store Delivery)
  • Merchandisers (Vending Machines)
