Kyrgyzstan Kyrgyzstan

Until 2016, Kyrgyzstan required text warnings that covered 52% of the front and back of tobacco packages. Regulations for pictorial warnings in Kyrgyzstan were developed by the Ministry of Health in August 2008 and intended to be implemented by April 1, 2009. However, the order was overturned by the Minister of Justice in January 2009. In December 2014, the Prime Minister approved regulations that required pictorial warnings on tobacco products effective January 2016. The warnings must cover the bottom 40% of the front and back of packages. Warning text must be in Kyrgyz (front) and Russian (back).
