Violations of content regulations are punishable according to Arts. 16-21 of Act No. 12-2012. However, it is not clear which of these articles is applicable to violations.
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.
