Romania prepares its national traceability system for tobacco products, to become fully operational by 31 December 2019
In preparation for the national traceability system for tobacco products, ANAF Order no. 2137/2019 regulating the procedure for implementing the provisions related to the traceability of tobacco products and ANAF Order no. 2138/2019 regulating the data storage contracts concluded as part of a traceability system for tobacco products have been published. We remind you that the traceability system for tobacco products became operational on 20 May 2019 for cigarettes and for roll-your-own tobacco, but Romania has adopted the Commission’s Decision (EU) 2019/691 of 2 May 2019 authorising economic operators to use the services of another ID issuer until the national traceability system becomes fully operational, but no later than 31 December 2019.
