The law does not regulate the contents of cigarettes; therefore, there are no specified penalties.
To align with FCTC Art. 9 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Guidelines, the law should regulate the contents of cigarettes and impose sanctions for violations.
Violations of disclosure requirements are subject to imprisonment from one to six months and a fine from 4,000,000.00 (four million) to 20,000,000.00 (twenty million) riel. In case of repeat infringement, the fine shall double.
A legal entity may be held responsible for disclosure violations. A legal entity that violates disclosure requirements is subject to double fines and one or more of the following: termination of the legal entity; state control by order of court; restrictions from undertaking certain activities; announcement of decision on punishment; and/or publication of decision on punishment through print media or TV and radio.
The law aligns with FCTC Art. 10 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Partial Guidelines in that the law imposes sanctions for disclosure violations.
