FCA Policy Briefing for COP5: Article 6 draft guidelines

Key recommendations

  • It is important to adopt Article 6 guidelines at COP5
  • Some modifications should be made to improve the draft guidelines, particularly in discussions of tax structures, illicit trade and the use of revenues from tobacco taxes
  • Parties should also give thought to the data collection and technical assistance needs for implementation of Article 6, as well as to possible changes to the FCTC reporting instrument; an expert report should be requested on these topics.
