Subject:  Drafting of regulations for Standardised Tobacco Packaging.

Decision(s): The Minister directed officers to submit law drafting instructions to the Law Draftsman for the preparation of new regulations that will require tobacco products to be supplied in a standardised plain packaged format.

Reason(s) for Decision:  The Minister, in line with the States of Jersey tobacco strategy commitments, has agreed that it is a priority for Jersey to proceed with bringing into force regulations on standardised plain packaging for tobacco products. In addition, that it would be desirable to coordinate with Guernsey in developing regulations that ensure consistency in compliance for tobacco supplied to both Islands. This intervention is intended to support a breadth of actions to reduce smoking and tobacco related harm by reducing the promotion appeal of tobacco packaging.


Resource Implications: None

Action required:

Officers to submit law drafting instructions on standardised packaging to Law Draftsman.
