    Philip Morris International follows a large area of EU policies, and engages in areas such as, taxation (direct and indirect), movement of excisable products (customs and excise), public health aspects of tobacco and smoking, including the development of potentially reduced risk products, product regulation, growing of tobacco leaf, fighting illicit trade, preserving intellectual property rights, and any other upcoming legislation of relevance to the operations of the company in the European Union. In particular, we followed the following policy items in 2023:

    - EU Beating Cancer Plan;
    - EU Position on International Conferences relating to Tobacco Regulation.
    Irrespective of where in the world we do business, we apply the same principles to our conduct. This includes not marketing or selling our products to minors. We engage with all stakeholders in support of legislation that applies to all tobacco/nicotine products.

    Other financial info

    This estimate of the annual costs is based on the percentage of the total cost of the PMI External Affairs office in Brussels and an estimate of the annual costs of activities by other PMI affiliates and subsidiaries directly related to representing interests of the EU Institutions, as of the most recent update of the registration details.
    We have taken a broad view in order to estimate the annual costs linked to activities covered by the Register, covering consultancy fees and membership fees to trade associations and other relevant organizations. Furthermore, the estimate also covers a broader set of outreach activities such as conferences, and other relevant events.
