In March 2016, SFP conducted an exercise of identifying tobacco interest representatives registered in the EU’s Transparency Register.

The results were published at https://smokefreepartnership.eu/position-papers-briefings-reports/sfp-briefing-on-article-5-3-of-the-fctc.

A similar exercise was conducted in 2017, relating to the updated declarations in the EU transparency register related 2015-2016 tobacco industry lobby spending.
