Chile implemented their current health warnings policy starting November 2006. Cigarette packages are required to have a health warning cover 50% of the front and back of the package. Overall, 50% of the package is appropriated to health warnings. 2 warnings, one graphic + text and one text-only, are rotated on cigarette packages.
Chile also prohibits the terms "light" and "mild" from appearing on packages.
As well, Chile requies one descriptive message on emissions and constituents on the side of packages.
