Action Required for Advertising, Promotion and Sponsorship Not Banned

Disclosure to the government by the tobacco industry of information on advertising, promotion and sponsorship activities and expenditures

Not Applicable
Analysis:

The law does not require disclosure to the government by the tobacco industry of information on advertising, promotion and sponsorship activities and expenditures because there is a comprehensive ban on tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship.

FCTC Art. 13 Guidelines para. 43 provides, however, that while the requirement for this kind of disclosure applies only to Parties that do not have a comprehensive ban, all Parties should implement the disclosure requirement in that it may help Parties that consider that they have a comprehensive ban to identify any advertising, promotion or sponsorship not covered by the ban or engaged in by the tobacco industry in contravention of the ban.

Health warning messages required on permitted forms of tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship

Not Applicable
Analysis:

Kosovo has a comprehensive ban on all forms of tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship.

Disclosed information readily available to the public

Not Applicable
Analysis:

The law does not require disclosure of information on advertising, promotion and sponsorship because there is a comprehensive ban on tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship. Therefore, the law does not require that such information be made readily available to the public. However, some forms of advertising, promotion and sponsorship may escape the ban. Therefore, in accordance with FCTC Art. 13 Guidelines paras. 42 and 43, the law should impose a disclosure requirement notwithstanding the ban and make information from the report readily available to the public.
