Tobacco industry challenges new EU rules

|By:, SA News Editor

The tobacco industry continues to challenge the necessity of new European Union rules which require governments to impose supply chain tracking on manufacturers.

The group thinks its current track and trace system can be adapted, instead of adopting costly third-party solutions.

One goal of an industry-wide tracking system is to cut down on the illegal trade of cigarettes.
