“Tobacco” means all tobacco products whether prepared for smoking, inhalation, chewing, or placement in the mouth for any other use and any product whereby tobacco components partially enter therein.
The definition of "tobacco" contained in the law does not align with the definition of “tobacco product” provided in FCTC Art. 1(f) because it does not note that this includes any product entirely or partly made of the leaf tobacco as a raw material.
A definition of "tobacco product" should be provided in accordance with the definition provided in FCTC Art. 1(f).
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
”Outer wrapping” means the external wrappers of cardboard, etc. for both the packages and the cartons.
The definition of “outer wrapping” contained in the law aligns with the definition of “outside packaging and labeling” contained in FCTC Art. 11 in that it encompasses packaging used in retail sale.
Any packaging and labeling used in the retail sale of the product. (FCTC Art. 11(4))
