Colombia Colombia

Colombia issued legislation requiring pictorial health warnings in July 2009. Tobacco companies had one year to implement the regulations. Since July 2010, all tobacco packages have been required to display pictorial warnings that cover 30% of both the front and back of the package. Different sets of health warnings are rotated annually.

Colombia also prohibits the terms “light” and “mild” from appearing on packages.
