Confédération Européenne des Détaillants en Tabac

Confédération

La Confédération Européenne des Détaillants en Tabac (CEDT), fondée en 1970, est un Groupe Européen d’Intérêt Economique, inscrit au Registre de la Transparence sous le numéro 85326064523-94, qui rassemble les associations nationales des détaillants de tabac, dans le respect du règlement CEE 2137/89.

La CEDT a pour principal objectif de promouvoir les intérêts de près de 150.000 détaillants de tabac européens, des professionnels au service de l’Etat et des citoyens auxquels ils garantissent la légalité d’un réseau de vente, l’authenticité et la qualité de produits particuliers comme le tabac, dans le cadre d’une consommation adulte et responsable, en respectant les normes nationales et européennes en matière de santé.

Le but de notre mission est d’encourager et de soutenir un dialogue permanent avec les Institutions et les acteurs afin de garantir à nos petites entreprises familiales la possibilité d’exercer dans un cadre réglementaire clair, empreint d’équilibre et de proportionnalité. Nous soutenons toute initiative qui permette la reconnaissance de notre rôle de défense de la légalité, contre les phénomènes de contrebande, de contrefaçon et de délit, et qui favorise la valorisation d’un système de vente contrôlé par l’Etat.

Nous soutenons la nécessité que les tabacs manufacturés ne soient vendus qu’exclusivement à travers des réseaux contrôlés détenteurs de licences ou concessions.

    ITALY: ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES AVAILABLE ONLY IN TOBACCO SHOPS OR IN POINTS OF SALE AUTHORIZED BY THE ITALIAN CUSTOMS AND MONOPOLY AGENCY

    At the end of a long process concluded with the last budget law, electronic cigarettes with and without nicotine can be sold only in tobacco shops and other places expressly authorized. Online sales are prohibited. The tobacconists are automatically authorized and therefore they can sell electronic cigarettes without any specific authorization. For other shops, it is necessary to submit an application to the Customs and Monopoly Agency and wait for the authorization to be issued on the basis of objective and subjective requirements established in a recent directorial decree. Only local shops wishing to treat these products as the main activity, pharmacies and para-pharmacies may apply for such authorization. The authorization is valid for two years and is renewable after the verification of the existence of the requirements.

    FRANCE: The French government is raising cigarette prices

    In March the price of a packet of cigarettes went up by 1 euro. Now, with cigarette packets as expensive as 8 Euros, smoking represents a significant budget. French Health Minister Agnès Buzyn and French Budget Minister Gérald Darmanin hope that such prices will encourage smokers to quit tobacco and prevent younger adults from smoking. The objective to reduce smoking rates in France seems to be a priority for the government. This is the second price increase in under a year. Other, similar measures are expected in the coming years. The price of a single packet of cigarettes should reach 10 Euros by November 2020.

    AUSTRIA: Austria scraps smoking ban in bars and restaurants

    The Austrian parliament voted in late March to drop plans to introduce a smoking ban in bars and restaurants. MPs voted to overturn the planned ban despite public protests and a petition which attracted more than 500,000 signatures. The country allows people to light up in restaurants and bars so long as they sit in a separate area. Bars smaller than 50 square meters (540 square feet) have the right to allow smoking throughout the premise.
