Sponsorship: taking measures for presentation of the product of contributing to all events or operations or real and legal persons which have direct or indirect impact.
The definition of "tobacco sponsorship" aligns with FCTC Art. 1(g).
Any form of contribution to any event, activity, or individual with the aim, effect or likely effect of promoting a tobacco product or tobacco use directly or indirectly. (FCTC Art. 1(g))
Tobacco Advertising and Promotion
Promotion: measures aimed to introduce the product and the firm, to encourage the purchase of the product, increase the sales or to enhance the firm's or brand's image; more products at the same price, same or additional product which is for free or discounted besides the product that is offered to disposition.
The definition of "promotion" contained in the law is structured differently than the FCTC definition. However, the law's definition is broad and appears to cover all of the elements within the FCTC definition. A definition of “tobacco advertising and promotion” should be provided in accordance with FCTC Art. 1(c).
Any form of commercial communication, recommendation, or action with the aim, effect or likely effect of promoting a tobacco product or tobacco use either directly or indirectly. (FCTC Art. 1(c))
Tobacco products: products that are entirely or partly made of the tobacco leaf as raw material, manufactured to be used for smoking, sucking, chewing or inhaling through the nose. Any kind of hookah and cigarette that does not contain tobacco but imitates a tobacco product is considered a tobacco product.
The term "tobacco products" is defined in accordance with the FCTC Art. 1(f) definition. However, the law could be improved by adding "or by any other means of consumption" to the list of consumption methods.
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))
