The Singapore government has announced that from March 2013, words like ‘light’, ‘low-tar’ and ‘mild’ will be banned from the packaging of tobacco products and a new set of graphic warnings will replace the current warnings used. Among other changes that will come about following the amendments in 2010 to the Smoking (Control of Advertisements and Sale of Tobacco) Act, the maximum tar and nicotine yield levels in cigarettes will be reduced, and current label indicating tar and nicotine yield levels on packaging will be replaced with warning of chemicals other than tar and nicotine in a cigarette.
