Norway Norway

In 2004, Norway introduced legislation that prohibited the advertising of tobacco products, and limited the public areas in which residents could smoke. In October 2009, Norway’s Ministry of Health and Care Services announced that all cigarette packs would be required carry a pictorial health warning by July 2011. Fourteen health warnings are rotated on cigarette packages. The warnings cover 43% of the front and 53% of the back of the package. Text warnings are required on smokeless tobacco products.

Plain tobacco packaging regulations were announced on March 31, 2017, and will come into force in Norway on July 1, 2017. Retailers will be given 1 year (until July 1, 2018) to transition to the new standardized cigarette packages and smokeless tobacco boxes.
