To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 12 April 2019 to Question 241464, what opportunity for appeal exists for economic operators in the event that the compensation offered by tobacco manufacturers for the equipment and software for the recording and transmission of product movement and transactional events to the data storage systems (Article 15(7) of TPD2014/40/EU) does not cover the cost to that operator of implementing the Tobacco Products (Traceability and Security Features) Regulations 2019.
Tobacco manufacturers have introduced a compensation scheme and appointed a third party provider to act as a single point of contact (SPoC) for all compensation claims. The SPoC appointed by the tobacco manufactures for the EU is Société Générale de Surveillance SA (SGS).
If an economic operator is not happy with the level of compensation offered, they can appeal to SGS.
