Plurinational State of Bolivia - Picture warnings required

A resolution issued on 25 May 2011 by the Minister of Health and Sports requires picture warnings to appear on the lower 50% of the front and back of tobacco product packages. Seven warnings have been adopted. In addition, information on the toxic constituents of tobacco products is required on the side of packages. Written health warnings already cover 50% of the front and back of tobacco product packaging in the country.

A notification of the resolution was published in a national newspaper on 4 June 2011. The resolution comes into force 180 days after publication of the notice, meaning that the implementation date for the new picture warnings is 1 December 2011.
