Last Friday, 20 May, the European Commission launched a call for evidence to evaluate the legislative framework for tobacco control, which will include the Tobacco Products Directive and the Tobacco Advertising Directive. The evaluation will assess if current tobacco control legislation has achieved its objectives and how it can support future commitments, namely a “Tobacco-Free Generation” by 2040, as set out in Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan. ETHRA's contribution to the call for evidence can be found on the EU consultation page, and on the submissions section of our website.
