§ 8 Publication
According to § 8 TNRSG, manufacturers and importers of tobacco and related products are obliged to provide the competent authorities with a list of their products and all ingredients used in their manufacture. The information available to the authorities will be published while respecting any business secrets.
The data are reconciled and updated with the EU-CEG data on a monthly basis (mid-term).
To be noted:
- Publication does not confirm the legality of the notification or the notified products. The authorities on a random basis check this.
- Electronic cigarettes and liquids may be placed on the market no earlier than six months after notification.
- The placing on the market of tobacco for oral use is prohibited in Austria. These products therefore do not appear in this listing.
- Novel tobacco products may only be placed on the market after approval by the BMSGPK. Therefore, only approved products are listed here.
