Panama Panama

Panama first introduced a policy requiring health warnings on cigarette packages in 2005. Health warnings were required to cover 100% of the back of all cigarette packages. In May 2008, Panama increased the size of the required health warnings to 50% of both the front and back of all cigarette packages.

Panama has updated the warnings regularly. New warning images were released in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2016.

As well, Panama requires tar, nicotine, and carbon monoxide emission numbers to appear on the side of packages. These emission numbers are generated using the ISO smoking method.
