The Maldives became a Party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control on February 27, 2005. The Tobacco Control Board, pursuant to the Tobacco Control Act of 15/2010, implemented the regulation on packaging and labeling of tobacco products in 2019. This regulation mandates all tobacco packaging to be labelled in accordance with the warning notice of the Ministry of Health. The warning statement should be inside the 90% (ninety percent) of the pack where warning notice is required, proportionate to the size of the pack.
