All producers of tobacco products and herbal products for smoking are required by law (the Tobacco Products Directive SI 507/2016) to provide the government with certain information, including ingredients, emissions and sales data, before making them available for sale.
This guidance provides information on making notifications, which must be done by using a European Common Entry Gate (EU-CEG) notification portal.
Public Health England (PHE) has been designated as the UK competent authority for the management and publication of notifications for tobacco products and herbal products for smoking. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) performs the same function for e-cigarettes.
This guidance is for:
businesses who manufacture tobacco or herbal products intended for smoking
businesses who put their name, trademark or similar on a product indicating they are the manufacturer or originator
anyone importing these products into the UK
This guidance includes a list of all tobacco and related products, identifying the manufacture or importer, product type, brand and, where provided, brand sub-type (brand name).
Products that appear on this list which do not comply with the appropriate legislation are not permitted to be sold in the UK. This list should not be taken as evidence to trade in any non-compliant products.
