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
The law requires tobacco manufacturers and importers to report annually information about sponsorship and philanthropy activities. All other forms of tobacco advertising and promotion are prohibited.
The law aligns with FCTC Art. 13 and the FCTC Art. 13 Guidelines with respect to disclosure of tobacco advertising, promotion, and sponsorship expenditures.
Health warning messages required on permitted forms of tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship
The law prohibits virtually all forms of domestic and cross-border tobacco advertising and promotion. To the extent sponsorship is allowed, the publicity of that sponsorship is prohibited. Therefore, this requirement is not applicable.
Disclosed information readily available to the public
The law requires that the National Agency for Public Health disseminate through its webpage sponsorship expenditures disclosed by tobacco manufacturers and importers.
The law aligns with FCTC Art. 13 and the FCTC Art. 13 Guidelines with respect to making the disclosed information readily available to the public.
