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.
(e.g., seizure of the product, publication of the violation/violator)
Any person who violates the law
Any person who fails to disclose cigarette contents bears responsibility according to procedure established by Turkmenistan legislation. The extent of that responsibility is not defined under the Tobacco Control Law.
To align with FCTC Art. 10 and the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Partial Guidelines, the law should impose sanctions for disclosure violations.
