France has been a Party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) since February 27, 2005. Even before the WHO FCTC, France had existing tobacco control legislation in place which is today known as the Code of Public Health. While France generally has strong safeguards against tobacco industry interference, a big challenge is the industry’s use of tobacco retailers and representatives to promote its interests.
