Singapore introduces standardised tobacco packaging

Tobacco products in Singapore must now be sold in standardised packaging that displays graphic health warnings. Logos, branded colours and promotional information are not permitted, and the mandatory size of graphic health warnings has increased from 50 to 75% of the package. The new regulations apply to all tobacco products including cigarettes, cigars and rolling tobacco. Retailers found breaching the regulations could be fined up to $10,000 ($7,170) and imprisoned for up to 6 months.
