ABOUT THE ID ISSUER PROJECT

The ID Issuer system is a response to European and national legislation on the labeling of all tobacco products with a unique identifier, enabling to trace them throughout the Union. The legal base for the functioning of the system is:
- Directive 2014/40/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 3 April 2014
- Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/574 of 15 December 2017
- Act from 22/02/2019 amending the Act on the protection of health against the effects of tobacco and tobacco products
- Regulation of the Minister of Finance of April 5, 2019 regarding the designation of the entity issuing identifiers.
