By WHO framework convention on tobacco control (WHO FCTC) – 64 pages

The Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products was adopted by consensus on 12 November 2012, at the fifth session of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the WHO FCTC. More than 50 Parties participated at the opening for signature on 10 January 2013, at Geneva.
The Protocol aims at eliminating all forms of illicit trade in tobacco products, by respecting the terms of Article 15 of the WHO FCTC. To do so, the Protocol emphasizes the need for securing the supply chain of tobacco products.
Thus, the Protocol is presented as a “new legal instrument in public health” which supplements the WHO FCTC to deter illicit activities related to tobacco products and to enhance international health cooperation.
