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.
