PICTURE BASED CIGARETTE WARNINGS

Cigarette warnings in Uruguay

In 2005, Uruguay developed regulations requiring eight picture health warnings to appear on the bottom 50% of each side of each tobacco package.  Tobacco companies were given six months to comply with the regulation, and messages messages must be on all cigarette packages in April 2006.

New images were required in 2008.

In June 2009, Uruguay increased the size of the required warnings to 80%. The new larger warnings are to be on packages by March, 2010.
