The definition of "tobacco products” contained in the law aligns with the definition provided in FCTC Art. 1(f).
Any product entirely or partly made of the leaf tobacco as a raw material which is manufactured to be used for smoking, sucking, chewing, or snuffing. (FCTC Art. 1(f))
Outside Packaging and Labeling
The law does not contain a definition of "outside packaging and labeling." The lack of definition for this key term may hinder implementation and enforcement of provisions requiring health warnings on tobacco product packages.
Any packaging and labeling used in the retail sale of the product. (FCTC Art. 11(4))
