France La politique de lutte contre le tabac a été couronnée de succès avec 1,6 millions de fumeurs en moins en deux ans. Entre 2003 et 2004, le paquet de 20 cigarettes a augmenté de 1 € passant de 4 € à 5 € et le nombre de cigarettes vendues a baissé de 21 %. Entre 2017 et 2018, le paquet de 20 cigarettes a augmenté de 1 € passant de 7 € à 8 € et le nombre de cigarettes vendues a baissé de 9,3 %.Toutefois, ces effets positifs sont atténués par la faible harmonisation fiscale observée sur les produits du tabac qui conduit à une très grande disparité des prix au sein des pays de l’Union européenne. L’article 32, paragraphe 1, de la directive 2008/118/CE prévoit que les produits soumis à accise acquis par un particulier pour son usage personnel et transportés personnellement d’un État membre à l’autre ne sont passibles de l’accise que dans l’État membre dans lequel les produits soumis à accise ont été acquis, et non dans l’État membre où les biens sont consommés. Le paragraphe 3 de cet article précise des niveaux indicatifs, uniquement à titre de preuve, qui servent de référence aux autorités pour déterminer si les produits soumis à accise transportés par un particulier d’un État membre à un autre doivent être considérés comme destinés à son propre usage. Pour la France, le fait que ces niveaux ne soient qu’indicatifs et non limitatifs réduit l’efficacité des politiques de santé publique, visant à faire baisser la consommation des produits du tabac, et favorise la hausse de la vente illicite de produits du tabac. Les achats transfrontaliers encouragent la fraude et limitent l’efficacité des politiques de santé que les États membres doivent mettre en œuvre pour protéger leurs populations. C’est pourquoi la France a fait de la lutte contre les achats transfrontaliers un des principaux leviers de sa politique de lutte contre le tabac, définis au sein du nouveau programme national de lutte contre le tabac lancé en 2018. Auprès des instances Européennes, la France propose que le principe des limites indicatives posé à l’article 32 soit remplacé par des limites quantitatives pour les États membres qui souhaiteraient réguler l’accès à leur marché national pour être en adéquation avec leurs objectifs de santé publique.
