The law does not regulate content and ingredients of tobacco products; therefore, there are no specified penalties.
To align with FCTC Art. 9 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Partial Guidelines, the law should regulate the contents of tobacco products and impose appropriate penalties for violations of content regulations.
Manufacturer or importer
Any manufacturer or importer of tobacco products who fails to provide government authorities with the required information, or knowingly provides them with false or misleading information is subject to 1-3 years in prison and a fine of 1,000,000 – 10,000,000 Burundian francs.
