The Framework Convention Alliance for Tobacco Control

FCA Policy Briefing: The illicit trade protocol

Key Recommendations:

  • Parties should adopt the ITP without amendment;
  • Parties should agree on a road map for preparing for ITP implementation between COP5 and COP6 or ITP MOP1, in particular to protect against tobacco industry influence. This road map should focus on:
    • Scoping of technical assistance and capacity-building needs;
    • Outreach to other organizations, particularly intergovernmental organizations, which are equipped to provide relevant technical assistance or assist with capacity building;
    • Involvement of the full range of government departments and agencies in ITP implementation preparations.
