This training covers the technical, policy and legislative considerations for regulating tobacco packaging and labelling, including graphic warning labels, misleading terminology and plain packaging outlined in Article 11 of the FCTC. The course draws on the experience of jurisdictions that have implemented effective packaging policies to address development of legislation; design and testing of potential images and labels; countering tobacco industry arguments and tactics; and implementation, promotion and evaluation of packaging measures.
The course can be adapted to focus on any of these areas in more detail, depending on the needs of participants. Participants will develop an action plan based on their particular country situation.
