Tobacco packaging – new specifications

From May 2016, new health warnings will be compulsory on packages of tobacco products, especially cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco.

The new warnings will consist of a colour photograph, a text warning on the harmful effects of smoking and smoking cessation information. Put together, these should cover 65% of the front and back of packages.
