FMF submission on tobacco display regulations
The proposed regulations
The draft regulations state that tobacco products in a wholesaler’s or retailer’s premises must be displayed only in a single sales unit with a maximum display area, except that cigars can be in a humidor or humidified room. Only one packet or item of each product line may be displayed. No tobacco product may be exposed for sale within a metre of products for children or confectionary unless this distance can’t be practicably maintained due to the premises’ size. Not more than a hundred tobacco products may be displayed, unless the premises are a specialist tobacconist’s. A display may include the products’ price, only if on price tickets or one price list conforming to prescribed requirements. A health and age warning sign must be displayed. Displays must not have enhancing features.
