Disclosure Requirements

Disclosure by manufacturers and importers of cigarettes to government authorities of information on the contents and/or ingredients used in the manufacture of their cigarettes

Not Required
Regulatory Authority:

Ministry of Public Health

Analysis

The Tobacco Products Control Act requires manufacturers and importers of tobacco products to disclose ingredients and emissions of tobacco products, in accordance with regulations promulgated by the Ministry of Public Health. Because the Minister has not yet issued regulations about such disclosure, the regulatory status code “Not Required” is given.

To align with FCTC Art. 10 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Partial Guidelines, the law should clearly require disclosure by manufacturers and importers to government authorities of information on the contents and/or ingredients used in the manufacture of their cigarettes.

Analysis

The Tobacco Products Control Act requires manufacturers and importers of tobacco products to disclose ingredients and emissions of tobacco products and to publish the results of tobacco product testing in order to inform the public.
Such testing and public disclosure must comply with regulations promulgated by the Ministry of Public Health, which have yet to be issued. Because the Minister has not yet issued regulations about such disclosure, the regulatory status code “Not Required” is given.

To align with FCTC Art. 10 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Partial Guidelines, the law should clearly require disclosure of tobacco product contents and emissions and that such information be made readily available to the public.
