The previous year’s sales data of tobacco products shall be submitted via EU–CEG every year until the 1st of July.

The list of tobacco products, novel tobacco products and herbal products for smoking intended for the Lithuanian market is provided in excel format. The excel format allows to filter out the information in accordance with the selected criterion, e.g., submitter, type of product, brand name or sub brand name of the product or product ID.

When searching for a particular product in the list, product names may sometimes closely resemble each other, so it is recommended to ask the supplier to provide the product’s EU-CEG ID number, the name of the submitter, and then check whether the brand name and sub-brand name of the product matches.

If the tobacco product is on the list, it is allowed to be sold in Lithuania.

The manufacturers and/or importers of tobacco products shall submit to the Drug, Tobacco and Alcohol Control Department notifications about the products intended to be placed on the Lithuanian market by brand name and type of the products.

The form of submission is determined in the Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/2186.

The notifications are submitted via the European Commission’s common entry gate EU-CEG:https://health.ec.europa.eu/eu-common-entry-gate-eu-ceg/providing-information-tobacco-products-e-cigarettes-and-refill-containers-eu-common-entry-gate-eu_en.

For a new or modified tobacco product the notification shall be submitted prior to the placing on the Lithuanian market of those products.
