Procedure and requirements
Documentos and requirements
You must contact the Directorate-General for Economic Activities to find out which documents you need to submit, as the documents vary depending on the change you need to report.
- Applications for a marketing authorisation for a new tobacco product must be submitted to the DGAE via the ePortugal portal. The application will then be sent to the Directorate-General for Health (DGS), which must issue an opinion within 4 months.
- The DGS may request additional tests or ask you to submit additional items or information. Any such request will suspend the deadline for issuing the opinion until the manufacturer or importer submits the necessary items or information. The DGAE will issue a reasoned decision, taking account of the DGS’s opinion, on the application for a marketing authorisation for the new tobacco product. This decision will be issued within 30 days of the DGAE receiving the opinion from the DGS.
Time of issue/decision
The authorisation will cease to be valid in the event of a change in the product necessitating a new notification.
It is free of charge.
