The law does not regulate the contents of cigarettes; therefore, there are no specified penalties.
To align with FCTC Art. 9 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Guidelines, the law should regulate the contents of cigarettes and impose sanctions for violations.
Violations of the disclosure requirement are punishable by: on summary conviction, a fine of 100,000 dollars and imprisonment for six months; or on conviction on indictment, a fine of 200,000 dollars and imprisonment for one year.
The law aligns with FCTC Art. 10 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Partial Guidelines in that the law imposes sanctions for disclosure violations.
