Plain packaging under scrutiny

20 Sep 2012. South Africa is exploring cigarette plain packaging and will issue a report on its feasibility by the end of this year, SAPA press agency said in a story citing Department of Health Director of Promotion Vilma Moodley

Graphic warnings for cigarette labels may also be instituted, she reportedly said in testimony before a health panel of Parliament. Following favourable review, the new regulations could be in place as early as next year, SAPA cited Moodley saying after the parliamentary briefing. A complete ban on smoking indoors in public places, eliminating smoking areas, and on outdoor smoking in some forms of outdoor areas will be proposed, Moodley said. (pi)
