Details

The Tobacco and Related Products Regulations (2016) require all producers of tobacco products and herbal products for smoking to give the government certain information before they can be sold in the UK. This includes product information, ingredients and emissions.

This guidance provides information on notifying such products to the UK government. Public Health England (PHE) has been designated as the UK competent authority for the management and publication of notifications for tobacco 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 which manufacture tobacco or herbal products intended for smoking
  • businesses which put their name, trademark or similar on tobacco or herbal products intended for smoking indicating they are the manufacturer or originator
  • anyone importing tobacco or herbal products intended for smoking into the UK

This guidance includes a list of all correctly notified tobacco and herbal products for smoking, identifying the manufacturer or importer, product type, brand and, where provided, brand sub-type (brand name).

PHE aims to ensure that all products listed on this page comply with the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations (2016) and the Standardised Packaging of Tobacco Products Regulations (2015).

Any 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.
