Tobacco product: a product composed, in whole or in part, of tobacco, including tobacco leaves and any extract of tobacco leaves intended for use by smoking, inhalation, chewing, sniffing, or sucking and includes cigarette papers, tubes, and filters.
Tobacco: the tobacco plant, including its seeds and leaves.
The definition of “tobacco product” aligns with the FCTC definition in that it covers products that are smoked, sucked, chewed, sniffed, or inhaled.
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
Packaging: the container, receptacle, or wrapper in which tobacco products are sold or distributed including the carton in which multiple packages are stored.
The definition of “packaging” aligns with the FCTC definition, and is more extensive than the FCTC definition in that it covers not only “the container, receptacle or wrapper” used at retail sale but also that used during distribution.
Any packaging and labeling used in the retail sale of the product. (FCTC Art. 11(4))
