The Australian Government Department of Health is undertaking a Post Implementation Review (PIR) of the tobacco plain packaging measure in accordance with the requirements of the Australian Government Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR). Tobacco plain packaging has been implemented as part of Australia’s comprehensive range of tobacco control measures through the Tobacco Plain Packaging Act 2011 and the Tobacco Plain Packaging Regulations 2011 available on the Australian Government ComLaw website at: www.comlaw.gov.au.
All tobacco products manufactured or packaged in Australia for domestic consumption effective 1 October 2012 were required to be in plain packaging. All tobacco products were required to be sold in plain packaging effective 1 December 2012. (You can read the full release HERE)
