Framework Convention on Tobacco Control

2008 saw further development of the global tobacco control agenda set by the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The FCTC came into force in 2005 and, by the end of 2008, 162 governments (known as Parties) had ratified the treaty. The FCTC contains provisions aimed at reducing both the supply of and demand for tobacco products; measures including public place smoking bans and a comprehensive ban on tobacco advertising; ingredients and emissions testing and disclosure; and promotion of economically viable alternative crops for tobacco farmers.
The FCTC provides countries that ratify it with a policy framework for addressing tobacco issues locally. Governments will, over time, consider
updating their local legislation, reflecting their interpretation of FCTC obligations and their own circumstances and priorities.
Where appropriate, BATcompanies will engage with local regulators and other interested parties during this process.
