When producing our tax stamps, we follow the tax stamp guideline ISO 22382:2018, which we have actively helped to design. Our tax stamps also meet the requirements for the necessary protection features in accordance with TPD2 (Art. 16) and are produced under strict security requirements in accordance with ISO 14298. Furthermore, KURZ is your contact for TPD2-compliant track & trace solutions (Art. 15) and, as an accredited company, we are ITSA-certified to generate UIDs. For producers, relevant product information can be recorded and stored centrally in their TRUSTCODE® Base database. We thus also meet the requirements of Art. 8 of the FCTC protocol.
