Mauritius Mauritius

Mauritius introduced pictorial health warnings on March 1, 2009. Health warnings are required to cover 60% of the front (in French) and 70% of the back (in English) of all cigarette packages, meaning 65% of the overall package space is appropriated to pictorial health warnings. Eight pictorial warnings are rotated on cigarette packages. Text-only warnings (“Smoking kills”) are also required on both side panels.

Text-only warnings are required on cigar and pipe tobacco packages.

Mauritius prohibits misleading terms such as “light”, “mild”, and “low tar” from appearing on tobacco packages.
