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

Not Applicable
Expand to view related litigation.
Analysis:

No disclosure to the government is required because the law prohibits all forms of tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship. Thus, there should be no activities or expenditures on 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.
