Public Health (Restrictions on Tobacco Products) Regulations 2022

31 May, 2023

COMMENTS: The Public Health (Restrictions on Tobacco Products) Regulations 2022 were issued under the Public Health Act. The regulations cover many aspects of tobacco control, including, but not limited to: sales to minors; restrictions on public smoking; plain packaging and labeling; and tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship. The regulations also prohibit the manufacture, import, distribution, sale of e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products. These regulations revoke the Public Health (Restrictions on Tobacco Products) Regulations 2008.

The regulations were initially supposed to enter into force on June 10, 2022. However, the Public Health (Restriction on Tobacco Products) (Amendment) Regulations 2022 amended the date to May 31, 2023. 

To the best of our knowledge, all laws provided here are in effect as of May 19, 2024 unless otherwise noted.
