About Track & Trace

ICON für Was ist Track & Trace



On May 20, 2019 the traceability system for tobacco and tobacco related product went live. The EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD II) 2014/40/EU regulates the manufacturing, packaging and sale of tabacco products. 

On October 13, 2018 the MVG was entrusted by the Federal Ministry of Finance as the ID issuer for individual identification features for tobacco products. Together with the Federal Computing Centre, which is operating the system, MVG provides the relevant applications.


All other tobacco products (such as cigars or cigarillos) must also be part of Track & Trace by May 20, 2024 at the latest.

How to register

Registration steps and general information

In order to create a highly secure Track & Trace system, we have implemented the following registration procedure. This process only has to be carried out once by each economic operator.


1. Registration Austrian Business Service Portal and of economic operators
Economic operators (manufacturers) who want to register with Track & Trace in Austria require valid access to the Austrian Business Service Portal (USP). Please visit the USP website for the registration process - more information can be found here: AT Issuer - USP Registration for Production System.


In the next step please fill out the form "Initial Registration Form Austria", so necessary data of the economic operators (Economic Operators EO), their facilities and also production machines (in case of industry) will be registered. In the case of foreign locations, registration of the EO in Austria is sufficient - all other data must be registered in the country of production.

All data is verified against the European Union Secondary Repository. To register, please email the Excel to post.track-trace-tabakwaren(at)brz.gv.at and T_T(at)mvg.at.


2. Accepting the terms and conditions

Accepting the General Terms and Conditions of Business and Delivery (GTC) is a prerequisite for receiving individual identifiers. This requires an e-mail from the company representative to post.track-trace-tabakwaren(at)brz.gv.at and T_T(at)mvg.at with the content "I accept your general terms and conditions and delivery conditions".
The issuing fee has been €0.59 (excl. VAT) for every 1,000 individual identifiers (upUIs) since April 1, 2021 in accordance with Section 16 (4) of TabMG.

3. Create users in the USP portal
After successfull registration, you will receive access to the USP after a few days by means of a European return receipt letter. From this point on, you can create a "web service user" who will then be authorized for Track & Trace. A detailed description can be found in the following document: AT ISSUER REGISTERING FOR PRODUCTION SYSTEM 1.7

4. API Key (REST Service Token)
If all registration steps have been completed, you can now collect the user and password from the USP via REST Service Token (API Key) using the EO ID.
The URL of the service is: https://txm.portal.at/track-and-trace-tobacco-issuer/api/authorization/token/{EO_ID}




Registration for wholesalers:

All wholesalers who want to participate in Track & Trace must register the data of the economic operator and its facilities. To do this, please fill out the registration form and mail it to t_t(at)mvg.at.


Currently, the following wholesalers are registered in Austria:
