Key Terms

Tobacco Product

Term Defined
Definition

"Tobacco products" means products entirely or partly made of the leaf of tobacco as raw material which are manufactured to be used for smoking, snuffing and chewing.

Analysis

The law’s definition of “tobacco products” aligns with the definition of “tobacco product” provided in FCTC Art. 1(f).

FCTC-Based Definition:

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

Term Not Defined
Analysis

The law does not contain a definition of “outside packaging and labeling.” This can hamper application and implementation of FCTC Art. 11 and the FCTC Art. 11 Guidelines. A definition of “outside packaging and labeling” should be provided in accordance with FCTC Art. 11(4).

FCTC-Based Definition:

Any packaging and labeling used in the retail sale of the product. (FCTC Art. 11(4))
