Turkey Working on Cigarette Branding Ban Law, Milliyet Says

Turkey is working on new regulations that would ban brand names, logos and designs on cigarette packaging and replace them with numbered black boxes, Milliyet reported, without saying where it got the information.

The regulations would ban any imagery or text other than health warnings and aims to reduce cigarette usage, the Istanbul-based newspaper said. Smokers would be required to order cigarettes by number, it said.

Health Minister Recep Akdag has asked officials from the World Health Organization and Turkey’s Tobacco and Alcohol Markets Regulation Board, or TAPDK, to coordinate on beginning technical studies toward implementing the new regulations, Milliyet said.
