Malaysia’s first implemented pictorial health warnings in January 2009. Health warnings were required to cover 40% of the front and 60% of the back of all cigarette packages. In January 2014, a second set of warnings were adopted, and the size requirements increased to 50% of the front and 60% of the back of all cigarette packages. Warning text must be in Malay (front) and English (back).

A qualitative (descriptive) constituents and emission information label is required on the side panel.

Misleading descriptors such as ‘light’, ‘ultra light,’ ‘mild’, ‘cool’, ‘extra’, ‘low tar’, ‘special’, ‘full flavour’, ‘premium’, ‘rich’, ‘famous’, ‘slim’, ‘Grade A’ or similar terms are prohibited from appearing on packages.
