Tobacco displays have been shown to increase the likelihood of children taking up smoking, and to undermine quit attempts among people who smoke. The Health Act 2009 brought in a prohibition on the display of tobacco products. These regulations are needed to enable delivery of this policy, support enforcement and to minimise costs of implementation for retailers.
