Germany ratified the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) on December 16, 2004. In 2007, researchers from the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum; DKFZ) in collaboration with the ITC Project established the ITC Germany (DE) Survey. Three survey waves have been conducted among a cohort of adult smokers and non-smokers aged 18 and older. In 2016, Germany joined the EUREST-PLUS Project as one of six countries that make up the ITC 6 European Country (6E) Survey. Two survey waves of ITC 6E Survey have been conducted among a cohort of adult smokers aged 18 and older.
