What is TPPFG?

Tobacco Product Plastic Filter Group CLG

TPPFG is the compliance scheme for tobacco filter products containing plastic in Ireland. TPPFG is a non-profit company set up by tobacco producers to help deliver on their obligations under the European Union (Extended Producer Responsibility) (Tobacco Filters Containing Plastic) Regulations 2022 and the EU Single Use Plastics Directive (2019/904) in Ireland.

Our membership is comprised of producers who offer tobacco products with filters containing plastic and plastic filters for use in combination with tobacco products. We cover the cost of the clean-up, transport and treatment of these products that are disposed of in public spaces.

TPPFG received approval on 23rd December 2022 to operate as the compliance scheme for the sector from the Minister for Environment, Climate and Communications.

If you import tobacco filters containing plastic, you have a legal obligation to join.
