COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2015/2186

of 25 November 2015

establishing a format for the submission and making available of information on tobacco products

(notified under document C(2015) 8162)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to Directive 2014/40/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 3 April 2014 on the approximation of the laws, regulations and administrative provisions of the Member States concerning the manufacture, presentation and sale of tobacco and related products and repealing Directive 2001/37/EC (1), and in particular Article 5(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 2014/40/EU provides that manufacturers and importers of tobacco products are to submit to the competent authorities of the Member States concerned information on the ingredients and emissions of tobacco products, and on their sales volumes. The information should be submitted prior to the placing on the market of new or modified products. The format for the submission of that information and its making available should be laid down.

(2)

The experience gained and the knowledge acquired with existing formats for the reporting of tobacco ingredients, where relevant, should be taken into account when developing the new format.

(3)

A common electronic reporting format for submission of information on ingredients and emissions of tobacco products should allow Member States and the Commission to process, compare, analyse and draw conclusions from the information received. The data will also help to identify the additives to be included in the updates of the priority list referred to in Article 6 of Directive 2014/40/EU, provide the basis for deciding whether maximum content levels should be set pursuant to Article 7(5) and (11) of that Directive and facilitate a coherent enforcement of the ban on products with characterising flavour as provided for in Article 7(1) of that Directive.

(4)

A common electronic entry gate for submission of data is essential to ensure uniform application of the reporting obligations set out in Directive 2014/40/EU. In particular, a common entry gate facilitates and harmonises the submission of data from the manufacturer or importer to the Member States. Streamlining the submission process also reduces administrative burden for manufacturers, importers and national regulators and facilitates comparison of data. To facilitate multiple uploads a repository might be established at the level of the common entry gate to allow for references to non-confidential documents.

The common entry gate should foresee tools for submission of information which are adequate both for companies which have comprehensive IT solutions in place (system-to-system submissions) and for companies which have no such solutions, in particular small and medium-sized companies. Companies will be provided with a submitter identification number which should be used for all submissions by this company.

(5)

Member States should be free to make the tools for submission of information on ingredients and emissions laid down in this Decision available for notification of novel tobacco products prior to their placing on the market in accordance with Article 19 of Directive 2014/40/EU. The tools could also facilitate submission of information on herbal products for smoking pursuant to Article 22 of Directive 2014/40/EU and submission of other relevant information on tobacco products.

(6)

When resubmitting data, including correcting errors in an earlier submission, the information should be provided through the common entry gate.

(7)

Whilst the full responsibility for gathering, verifying, analysing as appropriate, storing and disseminating the data collected in accordance with this Decision lies with the Member States, they should have the possibility to store the data submitted to them at Commission facilities. The service offered by the Commission should provide Member States with technical tools to facilitate compliance with their obligations under Article 5 of Directive 2014/40/EU. The Commission will develop a standard service level agreement for this purpose. The Commission should keep an off-line copy of the data submitted through the common entry gate for the purpose of applying Directive 2014/40/EU.

(8)

Manufacturers and importers should be encouraged to keep data provided to Member States up-to-date. To facilitate comparison within the Union, Member States should encourage manufacturers and importers to submit updates, such as annual sales data, during the first half of the subsequent calendar year. Member States should encourage manufacturers and importers, in the case of minor fluctuations across product batches, to submit information on actual quantities of ingredients in tobacco products annually and to update that information.

(9)

When submitting information on products with the same composition and design, manufacturers and importers should, to the extent possible, use the same product identification number, regardless of brand and subtype or whether they are placed on the market in one or more Member States.

(10)

It is appropriate to lay down rules concerning the treatment of confidential data by the Commission in order to ensure the greatest possible transparency of product information for the general public, whilst ensuring that due account is taken of trade secrets. The legitimate expectation of consumers to have access to adequate information on the content of products they intend to consume should be weighed against manufacturers' interests of protecting recipes of their products. Having regard to those competing interests, in particular data that could reveal flavours used in small quantities in specific products should be kept confidential.

(11)

Personal data should be processed in accordance with the rules and safeguards laid down in Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and the Council (2) and of Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 of the European Parliament and the Council (3).

(12)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee referred to in Article 25 of Directive 2014/40/EU,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Subject matter

This Decision establishes a common format for the reporting and making available of information on ingredients and emissions of tobacco products and on sales volumes.

Article 2

Format for data submission

1.   Member States shall ensure that manufacturers and importers of tobacco products submit information on ingredients, emissions and sales volumes referred to in Article 5 of Directive 2014/40/EU, including modifications and withdrawal from the market, in accordance with the format provided for in the Annex.

2.   Member States shall ensure that manufacturers and importers of tobacco products submit the information referred to in paragraph 1 by means of a common electronic entry gate for data submission.

Article 3

Storage of data

Member States shall be entitled to use data storage services offered by the Commission to comply with their obligations under Article 5(7) of Directive 2014/40/EU provided they have signed a service level agreement with the Commission.

Article 4

Identification number of the data submitter

Before submitting information to Member States in accordance with this Decision for the first time, the manufacturer or importer shall apply for an identification number (Submitter ID) generated by the operator of the common entry gate. The manufacturer or importer shall, upon request, submit a document providing company identification and authentication of activities in accordance with the national legislation where the company is established. The Submitter ID shall be used for all subsequent submissions and in all subsequent correspondence.

Article 5

Identification number of the product

1.   Based on the Submitter ID referred to in Article 4, the manufacturer or importer shall assign a Tobacco Products ID (TP-ID) for each product to be reported.

2.   When submitting information on products with the same composition and design, manufacturers and importers shall, to the extent possible, use the same TP-ID, in particular where data are submitted by various members of a group of companies. This shall apply regardless of brand, subtype and the number of markets on which they are placed.

3.   Where the manufacturer or importer is not able to ensure that the same TP-ID is used for products with the same composition and design, it shall at least provide, in so far as possible, the different TP-ID that were assigned to such products.

Article 6

Confidential data and disclosure of data

1.   In their submission, manufacturers and importers shall mark all information which they consider to be a trade secret or otherwise confidential and shall, upon request, duly justify their claims.

2.   When using the information transmitted for the purposes of applying Directive 2014/40/EU and Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4), the Commission shall, in principle, not consider the following information to be confidential or a trade secret:

(a)

for all tobacco products, inclusion and quantity of additives other than flavourings;

(b)

for all tobacco products, inclusion and quantity of ingredients other than additives used in quantities above 0,5 % of the total tobacco product unit weight;

(c)

for cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco, inclusion and quantity of individual flavourings used in quantities above 0,1 % of the total tobacco product unit weight;

(d)

for pipe tobacco, cigars, cigarillos, smokeless tobacco products and all other tobacco products inclusion and quantity of individual flavourings used in quantities above 0,5 % of the total tobacco product unit weight;

(e)

studies and data submitted according to Article 5(3) of Directive 2014/40/EU, in particular on toxicity and addictiveness. Where those studies are linked to specific brands, the explicit and implicit references to the brand shall be removed and the redacted version shall be accessible.

Article 7

Addressees
