Enforcement Agency

Content regulation


(e.g., seizure of the product, publication of the violation/violator)

Entities that can be held responsible

Individuals, Manufacturers, Sellers


The Law on Restrictions on the Sale, Consumption and Use of Tobacco states that all tobacco products manufactured in violation of the law are subject to confiscation. The administrative code contains no specific penalties for the manufacture of tobacco products in violation of content prohibitions contained in the Technical Regulations.

The law aligns with FCTC Art. 9 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Partial Guidelines in that it imposes sanctions for content regulation violations.

Disclosure requirement

Not Applicable

The law does not require disclosure by manufacturers or importers of information on the contents or emissions of their cigarettes; therefore, there are no specified penalties.

To align with FCTC Art. 10 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Guidelines, the law should require disclosure and impose sanctions for disclosure violations.
