This is a new government legislation, which means that anyone selling cigarettes and hand-rolling tobacco products will need to register for their own unique operator 'codes' in order to purchase and sell tobacco, so all sales of tobacco can be tracked and traced back to where they came from.
The regulations require all retailers to have an Economic Operator Identifier Code (their own unique code registered to their business) and a Facility Identifier Code (a unique code for each store or premises which sells tobacco) in order to purchase cigarettes and hand-rolling tobacco products from 20th May 2019 onwards.
To obtain the codes, retailers must apply to a government appointed ID issuer before 20th May 2019.
Bestway can apply to the government appointed ID issuer on your behalf for the codes you will require to purchase tobacco.
