Iran approved a law requiring picture-based warnings to be displayed on all cigarette packages sold in Iran on May 29, 2008. Picture-based warnings must be displayed on packages starting January 20, 2009. These warnings are required to cover 50% of the front and back of all cigarette packages meaning, overall, 50% of the package space is appropriated to health warnings. Eight health warnings are rotated on cigarette packages and a different set of warnings are rotated every two years.
