Contact with tobacco manufacturers: Recording your contact with a tobacco manufacturer
It is important therefore that all members of HMRC who have contact with tobacco manufacturers and discuss issues that may have a bearing on supply chain issues make a formal record covering what was discussed and what was agreed.
Examples of relevant issues are
- tobacco smuggling in general;
- supply chain policy;
- assurance activities;
- interpretation of law; or
- seizures of their products.
If appropriate, any member of HMRC receiving information from or about a tobacco manufacturer should report the fact to the National Humint Centre using the prescribed form.
