The European Union Tobacco Product Directive (TPD2) is extending its scope to include tobacco products like cigars, cigarillos, pipe tobacco and smokeless tobacco products becoming mandatory as of May 2024. This includes TRACK & TRACE, which we reported about earlier.

Free TRACK & TRACE with Ecomo Impex

Ecomo Impex is supporting small and medium size companies who ship quantities of cigar products of up to 100 boxes per year offering Cigar Track & Trace service for free.
Track & Trace becomes mandatory for all tobacco products as of May 2024, this implies that every producer, importer and retailer must comply with the labelling and tracking requirements of all tobacco products sold within the EU.

As Track & Trace becomes obligatory across the EU on May 20th, 2024, small operators encounter technical hurdles and increased operational costs and we understand the challenge this means”, said Hung Ma, Founder and Managing Director of Ecomo Impex.

We already have this system set up and would like to open it to all smaller-scale businesses, allowing them to enter the EU market with confidence and without fear of regulatory issues. Our commitment supports smaller-scale businesses, ensuring a wider variety of products available in the European market. If the quantity shipped exceeds over 100 boxes per year, we will charge our regular Track and Trace service fees,” added Hung Ma.

Ecomo Impex offers centralised coverage across the EU as well as overall assistance in import processes, product labelling, sales, distribution via EMCS, and brand building making it possible to tailor to the specific needs of any producer, brand owner or operator.
