Spain implemented their current health warnings policy in May, 2011, twelve months after official publication. Including the border, health warnings are required to cover 43% of the front and 53% of the back of backages, meaning that 48% of the package surface is appropriated to health warnings. Spain will rotate a set of 14 images.
Spain also prohibits the terms “light” and “mild” from appearing on packages.
As well, Spain requires tar, nicotine, and carbon monoxide emission numbers to appear on the side of packages. These emission numbers are generated using the ISO machine smoking method.
