Sri Lanka has been a Party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) since February 27, 2005. The National Authority on Tobacco Control and Alcohol Act 2006 is the principal law governing tobacco control in Sri Lanka. While there is no sustained program to consistently raise awareness on Article 5.3 within government departments, the National Authority on Tobacco and Alcohol has initiated the development of a plan to implement Article 5.3 in 2019.
