COMMENTS: Law No. 121 on the Protection of Health of the Citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic from the Effects of Tobacco and Nicotine Consumption and from Exposure to Ambient Tobacco Smoke and Aerosol is the primary piece of tobacco control legislation. It governs, among other things, smoking in public places; advertising, promotion and sponsorship; packaging and labeling of naswar (a smokeless tobacco product); sales restrictions; and restrictions on e-cigarettes. It also adopts the rules established by the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union "Technical Regulations on Tobacco Products" (TR CU 035/2014). This law repeals Law No. 175 of 2006 "On the protection of the health of the citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic from the harmful effects of tobacco" and amendments to Law No. 175 of 2006 (including Law No. 316 of 2009 and Article 2 of Law No. 111 of 2017).
