| December 17, 2012

The European Commission is due to adopt its proposals to revise the EU’s tobacco products directive on Wednesday.

According to the Commission’s Top News, the proposed legislation comprises new and strengthened rules on how tobacco products may be manufactured, presented, and sold.

The proposals, which are said to involve a substantial revision of the current EU law, take into account ‘market, scientific and international developments’, and respond to requests from the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers.

‘The main objective of the revision is to improve the functioning of the internal market, whilst assuring a high level of public health,’ the Top News story said.

Once the proposals have been adopted, they will be discussed in the European Parliament and by the Council of Ministers.
