Article 18
Cross-border distance sales of tobacco products

1.
Member States may prohibit cross-border distance sales of tobacco products to consumers. Member States shall
cooperate to prevent such sales. Retail outlets engaging in cross-border distance sales of tobacco products may not supply
such products to consumers in Member States where such sales have been prohibited. Member States which do not
prohibit such sales shall require retail outlets intending to engage in cross-border distance sales to consumers located in
the Union to register with the competent authorities in the Member State, where the retail outlet is established, and in the
Member State, where the actual or potential consumers are located. Retail outlets established outside the Union shall be
required to register with the competent authorities in the Member State where the actual or potential consumers are
located. All retail outlets intending to engage in cross-border distance sales shall submit at least the following information
to the competent authorities when registering:
(a) name or corporate name and permanent address of the place of activity from where the tobacco products will be
supplied;
(b) the starting date of the activity of offering tobacco products for cross-border distance sales to consumers by means of
Information Society services, as defined in point 2 of Article 1 of Directive 98/34/EC;
(c) the address of the website or websites used for that purpose and all relevant information necessary to identify the
website.
2.
The competent authorities of the Member States shall ensure that consumers have access to the list of all retail
outlets registered with them. When making that list available, Member States shall ensure that the rules and safeguards
laid down in Directive 95/46/EC are complied with. Retail outlets may only start placing tobacco products on the market
via cross-border distance sales when they have received confirmation of their registration with the relevant competent
authority.
3.
The Member States of destination of tobacco products sold via cross-border distance sales may require that the
supplying retail outlet nominates a natural person to be responsible for verifying — before the tobacco products reach
the consumer — that they comply with the national provisions adopted pursuant to this Directive in the Member State of
destination, if such verification is necessary in order to ensure compliance and facilitate enforcement.
4.
Retail outlets engaged in cross-border distance sales shall operate an age verification system, which verifies, at the
time of sale, that the purchasing consumer complies with minimum age requirements provided for under the national law
of the Member State of destination. The retail outlet or natural person nominated pursuant to paragraph 3 shall provide
to the competent authorities of that Member State a description of the details and functioning of the age verification
system.
5.
Retail outlets shall only process personal data of the consumer in accordance with Directive 95/46/EC and those
data shall not be disclosed to the manufacturer of tobacco products or companies forming part of the same group of
companies or to other third parties. Personal data shall not be used or transferred for purposes other than the actual
purchase. This also applies if the retail outlet forms part of a manufacturer of tobacco products.

obligation may be complied with by the marking and recording of aggregated packaging such as cartons, mastercases or
pallets, provided that the tracking and tracing of all unit packets remains possible.
