On 8 March 2016, the Council adopted conclusions on the structure and rates of excise duty applied to manufactured tobacco.

It called for efforts to be made to simplify and clarify the structure of excise duties on manufactured tobacco. Some products, such as e-cigarettes, do not fall into any of the categories of products subject to excise duty. The conclusions set out a way forward for handling such issues. The Council considers that any amendments to the directive should be proportionate to the objectives sought. They should also aim to reduce tax fraud.
