Reporting obligations on smokeless tobacco products

Manufacturers or importers of smokeless tobacco products are required to report the ingredients and pay a mandatory fee for each product intended to be available to consumers on the Swedish market. Each year you must also fulfil the annual reporting obligation for your reported products and pay a mandatory fee.

Reporting of ingredients and annual reporting obligation

Smokeless tobacco products intended for consumers in Sweden must be reported to us before they can be sold. Each year there is an annual reporting obligation. In Sweden, manufacturer or importers of the product must submit the reporting of ingredients and fulfill the annual reporting obligation.

  • If the manufacturer is established in the EU, it is primarily the manufacturer who is obliged to report the information.
  • If the manufacturer is established in a country that is not a member of the EU or the EEA (European Economic Area), but the importer is established in the EU, it is primarily the importer who is required to report the information.
  • If both the manufacturer and the importer are established in a country that is not a member of the EU or the EEA, they are jointly obliged to report the information.

Fees for the reporting of ingredients and the annual reporting obligation

We charge mandatory fees:

  • SEK 13,000, for the reporting of ingredients of each brand and type of smokeless tobacco products. A fee for the reporting of ingredients is charged:
    • The first time a product is submitted to Sweden.
    • When a product is relaunched on the Swedish market after it has been withdrawn from this market.
    • When a substantial modification is submitted, which modifies the composition of a reported product in a way that affects the previously provided information.
  • SEK 1,000, for the annual reporting of each brand and type of tobacco for oral use.
  • SEK 1,500, for the annual reporting of each brand and type of other smokeless tobacco products than tobacco for oral use.

We will send the manufacturer or importer that submits the reporting a payment instruction the month after the submission have been made in EU-CEG. This payment instruction will state how much you must pay and to which account the payment must be made. The payment must be made within 30 days from the day the payment instruction was issued.
