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.
Any person violating the act
Violations of the disclosure requirement are punishable by a fine of 1,000,000 fc to 5,000,000 fc.
The law aligns with FCTC Art. 10 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Partial Guidelines in that the law imposes sanctions for disclosure violations. The law could be strengthened by imposing increased penalties for repeat offenses and by designating a government body responsible for enforcement.
