Part 1                 Preliminary

  

1              Name of Regulations [see Note 1]

                These Regulations are the Trade Practices (Consumer Product Information Standards) (Tobacco) Regulations 2004.

2              Commencement

                These Regulations commence on 1 September 2004.

3              Trade Practices (Consumer Product Information Standards) (Tobacco) Regulations — repeal

                Statutory Rules 1994 Nos. 83 and 408 are repealed.

3A           Purpose

                The purpose of these Regulations is to provide for a system of warnings, explanatory messages and graphic images to increase consumer knowledge of health effects relating to smoking, to encourage the cessation of smoking and to discourage uptake or relapse.

4              Application

         (1)   These Regulations apply to tobacco that is manufactured in Australia or imported into Australia.

         (2)   These Regulations do not apply to tobacco for export or cigars sold singly.

5              Interpretation

         (1)   In these Regulations:

bidi means a small, often flavoured, cigar wrapped in tendu leaf or the leaf of another plant.

cigar means a roll of cut tobacco for smoking, enclosed in tobacco leaf or the leaf of another plant.

cigarette means a roll of cut tobacco for smoking, enclosed in paper.

face, in relation to a retail package of which the outer surface includes 2 or more flat areas that are bounded by edges of the package, means any of those flat areas.

flip‑top pack means a retail package of the kind commonly called a flip‑top pack or hinge‑top pack.

pouch means a retail package that:

                (a)    is made from flexible material; and

               (b)    takes the form of a rectangular pocket with a flap that covers the opening.

retail package has the meaning given by regulation 6.

seal means the following, as the context requires:

                (a)    a decorative adhesive paper or label affixed to the surface of a package to seal the wrapper;

               (b)    an adhesive bond.

soft pack means a retail package of the kind commonly called a soft pack or soft cup.

tobacco includes cigarettes and cigars.

         (2)   For these Regulations, an opening, gap or edge that is created in a face of a retail package when the package is opened is to be disregarded.

         (3)   An area of a surface that bears decorative ridges, embossing, bulges or other irregularities, but is otherwise flat, is taken to be a flat area for these Regulations.

         (4)   For these Regulations:

                (a)    a soft pack is taken to be a solid that has all its faces rectangular and that has edges equal in length to the edges of the smallest rectangular cavity inside which the pack would fit if it is not compressed; and

               (b)    a face that has rounded corners but is otherwise square or rectangular is taken to be square or rectangular, as the case requires.

         (5)   For these Regulations, the surface area of a retail package is the area that would be covered by the outer layer of the package if it were opened out and pressed flat.

         (6)   A reference in these Regulations to a cylindrical package includes a package that is, in one plane, elliptical, rather than circular, in cross‑section.

         (7)   For these Regulations, a message that is printed on an adhesive label attached to a retail package in accordance with regulation 16 or 30 is taken to be printed on the package to which the label is attached.

6              Retail package

         (1)   A retail package is a package in which tobacco is sold at retail.

Note   Under the definition of tobacco in subregulation 5 (1), tobacco includes cigarettes and cigars.

         (2)   If:

                (a)    one or more packages are contained inside a larger package; or

               (b)    2 or more packages are combined to form a larger package;

and the whole is offered for retail sale as one unit:

                (c)    the larger package is a retail package; and

               (d)    each smaller package is a retail package.

Example

Packets of cigarettes in a carton.

         (3)   However:

                (a)    a display case that is not sold with the tobacco displayed in it is not a retail package; and

               (b)    a wrapper on, or a container containing, a single cigar is not a retail package; and

                (c)    if:

                          (i)    a retail package is normally sold wrapped in a wrapper (including, but not limited to, a transparent wrapper) that is normally removed from the package when the package is opened; and

                         (ii)    the wrapper is not a larger package described in subregulation (2);

                        the wrapper is not part of the retail package.

Part 2                 Labelling of retail packages

  

7              Labelling of retail packages

         (1)   A retail package manufactured in Australia, or imported into Australia, on or after the commencement of this regulation, and before 1 March 2006, must be labelled in accordance with Part 3 or 4.

         (2)   A retail package (other than a larger package that complies with regulation 7A) manufactured in Australia, or imported into Australia, on or after 1 March 2006 must be labelled in accordance with Part 4.

Note   Under subsection 65D (2) of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (the Act), regulations may prescribe a consumer product information standard for goods of a particular kind. Under subsection 65D (1) of the Act, a corporation must not supply goods of that kind unless the corporation has complied with the standard in relation to the goods.

Under section 75AZT of the Act, a corporation is guilty of an offence if the corporation supplies goods in respect of which a consumer product information standard has been prescribed by regulations made for the purpose of subsection 65D (2), and the corporation has not complied with the standard in relation to the goods.

7A           Fully transparent larger packages — ‘front and back’

         (1)   A larger package complies with this regulation if:

                (a)    the wrapper comprising the larger package is totally transparent; and

               (b)    the smaller packages contained within the larger package are:

                          (i)    all the same kind of package; and

                         (ii)    arranged so that:

                                   (A)     only the front face of a smaller package or packages is visible at one side of the larger package, and only the back face of a smaller package or packages is visible at the opposite side; or

                                   (B)     only the front face of a smaller package or packages is visible at one end of the larger package, and only the back face of a smaller package or packages is visible at the opposite end.

Note 1   A larger package that complies with regulation 7A is exempt from the labelling requirements in Parts 3 and 4 — see subregulation 7 (2).

Note 2   Subparagraph (b) (ii) permits the smaller packages mentioned in that provision to be arranged in ‘ranks’ or in ‘files’.

         (2)   A larger package does not fail to comply with subregulation (1) by reason only that it bears any of the following markings:

                (a)    bar coding;

               (b)    labelling information required by a law of a State or Territory;

                (c)    calibration marks to assist the operation of an automatic packaging machine.

                This Division applies to a retail package containing cigarettes.

19            Message to be printed on side of retail packages of cigarettes

         (1)   For this regulation, a reference to the sides of a retail package containing cigarettes is a reference:

                (a)    in the case of a cylindrical retail package — to those parts of the curved surface of the package that, if the vertical centre‑line of the largest brand‑name on the curved surface of the package is taken to be at 0 °, extend:

                          (i)    from 60 ° to 120 °; and

                         (ii)    from 240 ° to 300 °;

around the circumference of a flat face of the package; and

               (b)    in the case of a package that has 2 faces that are hexagonal or octagonal, and of which all the other faces are square or rectangular — to the square or rectangular faces of the package, other than the front and the back; and

                (c)    in the case of a carton — to the larger 2 of the 4 faces other than the front and the back;

               (d)    in any other case — to the surfaces of the package, other than the back and the front, that are vertical when the package is held so that the axis of the cigarettes within it is vertical.
