FCA Backgrounder: Potential partners for ITP implementation


There are many potential partnerships for implementing the FCTC Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products (generally known as the ITP). Implementation requires specific subject matter expertise outside the health community.

The potential partners described in this document have a wide range of expertise, experience, infrastructure and other resources in conducting needs assessments, drafting regulations and legislation, implementing treaties and other instruments, and providing training in those highly specialized disciplines. Some have demonstrated long-term commitments to tobacco, taxation, illicit trade and anti-money laundering.
