This guidance provides an overview of new rules on the packaging of tobacco (and herbal products for smoking) for retail, which came into force on 20 May 2016.
These rules include, for example, minimum sized health warnings on all tobacco packaging (and herbal products for smoking) for retail. They also require standardised packaging (or ‘plain packaging’) for individual cigarette sticks, cigarette packs and hand rolling tobacco packs for retail.
