TRACEABILITY: COMMON NOTIFICATION ERRORS AND PRODUCT MOVEMENTS
The European Commission, along with the service provider of the secondary database of the traceability system of tobacco products, DENTSU Aegis, have prepared a document that describes the most common notification errors observed during the first months of operation of the secondary database and the EU router, as well as an explanatory scheme on how to notify product movements.
Its main purpose is to help economic operators to review the practical aspects of their internal procedures and practices in order to ensure that their activities fully comply with the applicable regulations on tobacco traceability. The appearance of notification errors may compromise compliance with the applicable regulations, so the revision of the following documents becomes relevant.
