The TMA believes that it is the role of Government to communicate health messages about smoking provided such warnings are proportionate and do not infringe trademark rights.
It is appropriate for legislators to determine the nature of the health warnings they require on pack and our member companies have always complied with those requirements.

On 1st October 2008, pictorial warnings were introduced for cigarette and tobacco products in the UK. The last permitted date for manufacture of other tobacco product’s textual warnings was 30 September 2009, with a last date for sell-through of 30 September 2010.
