Information for sellers of tobacco products and Smoke-free Enforcement Officers
These guidelines provide information to sellers of tobacco products to ensure that they understand the new obligations placed on them when the prohibition on tobacco displays comes into force on 23 July 2012.
These guidelines will also assist Smoke-free Enforcement Officers to enforce the new law.
The aim of providing common guidance to both retailers and Smoke-free Enforcement Officers is to maximise compliance with the new requirements and enable a smooth transition to the new regulatory regime. It is also hoped that the guidelines will help avoid any unnecessary compliance costs or other undesirable impacts on retailers.
