Australia The Australian Government announced it would set a new target of reducing smoking rates below 10 per cent by 2025. The new target reflects the Government’s ongoing commitment to reducing tobacco use in Australia. The next iteration of the National Tobacco Strategy is expected to commence in 2020. The new strategy will complement the development of a new 10-year National Preventive Health Strategy, which will address a range of topics including tobacco control. The new strategy also will provide a national framework to work towards the Government’s target to reduce smoking rates to below 10 per cent by 2025. Currently the National Tobacco Strategy (NTS) 2012-2018 sets out a national policy framework for the Australian Government and state and territory governments to work together and in collaboration with non-government organisations (NGOs) to improve the health of all Australians by reducing the prevalence of smoking and its associated health, social and economic costs, and the inequalities it causes. The National Tobacco Strategy 2012-2018 (NTS 2012-2018) sets out a national policy framework for the Australian Government and state and territory governments to work together and in collaboration with non-government organisations (NGOs) to improve the health of all Australians by reducing the prevalence of smoking and its associated health, social and economic costs, and the inequalities it causes. Under the COAG National Healthcare Agreement (NHA) by 2018, Australian governments have committed to: • reducing the daily national smoking rate among Australian adults (aged 18 years or older) from 19.1% (age-standardised) in 2007-08 to 10%; and • halving the daily national smoking rate among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults (aged 18 years or older) from 47.7% (44.8% age-standardised) in the same period. Progress against the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) performance benchmark for tobacco is being measured against the results from the Australian Bureau of Statistics National Health Survey (NHS) to monitor changes in smoking prevalence in the general population using age standardised rates. Part Seven of the NTS 2012-2018 notes that in order to assess whether Australia is on track to meet the COAG performance benchmark for tobacco, a Mid-Point Review of progress would be undertaken. The Mid-point review of the NTS 2012-2018 included two components: a data analysis component, which was undertaken by the Australian Health and Welfare Institute and a policy analysis component, undertaken by Health Policy Analysis Pty Ltd. Work on both reports was undertaken in 2016 and are available at: http://www.nationaldrugstrategy.gov.au/internet/drugstrategy/publishing.nsf/Content/national_ts_2012_2018 Findings from the Mid-Point Review will assist the Commonwealth, states and territories and relevant NGOs in developing and implementing priorities in tobacco control for the remainder of the NTS 2012-2018. The findings will also provide a useful resource in the development of a new NTS beyond 2018. The National Tobacco Strategy (NTS) 2012-2018 was endorsed by Commonwealth, state and territory Health Ministers in November 2012. The NTS 2012-2018 was developed by the Intergovernmental Committee on Drugs, Standing Committee on Tobacco as a sub-strategy under the National Drug Strategy 2010-2015, and sets out a national framework to reduce tobacco related harm in Australia, with the goal “to improve the health of all Australians by reducing the prevalence of smoking and its associated health social and economic costs, and the inequalities it causes”. The objectives of the NTS 2012-2018 are to: 1. Prevent the uptake of smoking; 2. Encourage and assist as many smokers as possible to quit as soon as possible, and prevent relapse; 3. Reduce smoking among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, groups at higher risk from smoking, and other populations with a high prevalence of smoking; 4. Eliminate harmful exposure to tobacco smoke among non-smokers; 5. Reduce harm associated with continuing use of tobacco and nicotine products; 6. Ensure that tobacco control in Australia is supported by focused research and evaluation; and 7. Ensure that all of the above contribute to the continued denormalisation of smoking. Overall progress under the NTS 2012-2018 will be monitored using targets consistent with the performance benchmark agreed by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in the 2008 National Healthcare Agreement and its 2012 update, and the public health outcome identified in the COACG 2008 National Partnership Agreement on Preventive Health and its 2012 update. These targets are set out in the NTS 2012-2018 (pages 2, 11, and 38) as follows: By 2018: 1. Reduce the national adult daily smoking rate to 10 per cent of the population. 2. Halve the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adult daily smoking rate (from 47%) over the 2009 baseline. Further information on the NTS 2012-2018 is available at http://www.nationaldrugstrategy.gov.au/internet/drugstrategy/publishing.nsf/Content/national_ts_2012_2018 As outlined in the Strategy itself, to assess whether Australia is on track to achieve these targets, a mid-point review of the progress will be undertaken. Australia has commenced work on this mid-point review, with the aim of measuring the progress made against the outcome indicators in the Strategy, and to provide an updated data analysis report. For the purpose of this project the mid-point date is considered to be 31 December 2015. WHO Western Pacific Region
Austria The FMoH has developed a national addiction prevention strategy which was adopted by the Council of Ministers in February 2016. This strategy covers all kinds of addiction: non-substance as well as substance related addictions including alcohol and tobacco. This strategy is based on a study (“Delphi-Study”) through which well-known experts and practitioners in the fields of science and addiction related matters were consulted. On the provincial level, addiction prevention strategies are taking into account tobacco prevention measures/activities (monitored by the FMH). The Austrian smoking cessation quitline, which in 2014 was renamed from “Rauchertelefon” (“smoking quitline”) into” Rauchfrei Telefon” (“smokefree quitline”), is continuing to be offered free of charge. Due to an amendment of the Austrian tobacco law (being set into force on 20 May 2016) which implements the regulations of the 2014 EU tobacco product directive (no. 2014/40/EU ) into national law, all cigarette packages have to provide information on and help for somking cessation.

Canada The Government of Canada addresses the public health issue of tobacco control through Canada’s Tobacco Strategy (CTS). Launched in 2018, it replaced the Federal Tobacco Control Strategy (FTCS), which had been in existence since 2001. CTS is the result of extensive consultation and engagement with Canadians across the country, leveraging strengthened authorities granted by the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act (TVPA) and significantly increased ongoing funding for federal action on tobacco announced in 2018. The Tobacco and Vaping Products Act (TVPA) – formerly the Tobacco Act - was enacted on May 23, 2018. Canadas Tobacco Strategy is a comprehensive, integrated and sustained approach to drive down the smoking rate in Canada to less than 5% by 2035 through focused action to help Canadians quit smoking, including groups of Canadians with the highest rates of tobacco use, and to prevent youth and non-tobacco user from nicotine addiction. It also takes a pragmatic and compassionate approach to support Canadians who already use tobacco to reduce the negative consequences of nicotine addiction. CTS priority areas include: • help Canadians quit tobacco; • protect youth and non-tobacco users from nicotine addiction; • work with Indigenous groups to create specific plans for Indigenous people; • strengthen our science, surveillance and partnerships. Through Canada’s Tobacco Strategy, the Government of Canada is: • continuing to strengthen legislative and regulatory measures to protect youth and non-smokers and actively enforcing current requirements under the federal Tobacco and Vaping Products Act and regulations; • working with the provinces and territories to modernize smoking cessation services across the country to make it easier, faster and more appealing for smokers to access the support and tools they need in a way that best works for them; • expanding funding for tobacco programs that target groups of Canadians disproportionately affected by smoking; • updating and improving the effectiveness of public education resources, including marketing campaigns to educate youth, young adults and their parents about the harms and risks associated with tobacco and vaping products and nicotine addiction; • exploring and consulting on potential options that could further reduce the appeal and addictiveness of tobacco and vaping products, including the regulation of nicotine content; • studying the health impacts of nicotine products and understanding how Canadians use them to inform decision-making; and • maintaining and supporting work done around the world as a part of the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. In collaboration with the provinces and territories, First Nations, and international law enforcement partners, the Government of Canada also continues to combat illicit tobacco, and is undertaking independent research to better understand and assess Canada’s evolving contraband tobacco market. In Canada, tobacco control responsibilities are shared by multiple levels of government. In addition to federal initiatives, all provinces and territories (P/Ts) currently have tobacco control legislation in place, some with restrictions beyond those found in the federal TVPA. For example, a number of Canadas provinces and territories have enacted legislation raising the minimum age for furnishing a tobacco or vaping product from 18 to 19 or even 21 years of age. Rules on smoke-free spaces are generally the responsibility of P/T and municipal governments, with the exception of federal workplaces and federally regulated spaces, such as banks and commercial aircraft. All P/Ts also have extensive tobacco control strategies in place. P/T spending on tobacco control is estimated to represent more than half of the total tobacco control expenditure in Canada. The Government of Canada has implemented nearly all of the available measures recognized by the WHO as good practices in tobacco control and continues to expand and explore opportunities for further action to drive down smoking rates. The Government of Canada is also addressing a rapid rise in youth vaping, which threatens Canada’s hard-earned gains in tobacco control. Recent federal initiatives to address tobacco and vaping products include: • the launch of a national public education campaign in January 2019 to inform youth of the health risks of vaping; • public consultations launched in April 2019 on potential regulatory measures to reduce youth access and appeal of vaping products, including measures to restrict the concentration and/or delivery of nicotine, prohibit the manufacture and sale of vaping products with certain flavours or flavour ingredients and/or prohibit the promotion of certain flavours; • new Tobacco Products Regulations (Plain and Standardized Appearance) for tobacco packages and products that came into force in November 2019; • new Vaping Products Labeling and Packaging Regulations published in December 2019 that will require that all vaping substances display important health and safety information as well as health warning messages and child resistant packaging; and • proposed new regulations announced in December 2019 to prohibit the promotion and advertising of vaping products anywhere they can be seen or heard by youth. The Government of Canada also continues to monitor tobacco and vaping use through the bi-annual Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CSTADS) and recently launched a new semi-annual Canadian Tobacco and Nicotine Survey (CTNS) to monitor tobacco and vaping product use in Canada. The Government of Canada is also conducting new qualitative surveillance activities, including the launch of a longitudinal Vaper Panel Survey and conducting public opinion research to better understand and improve the effectiveness of federal programs and policies to address the use of tobacco and vaping product use in Canada. The Government of Canada addresses the public health issue of tobacco control through the Federal Tobacco Control Strategy (FTCS). Launched in 2001, the FTCS was designed as a comprehensive, integrated and sustained approach to achieving reductions in tobacco use. The Government of Canada renewed the Federal Tobacco Control Strategy (FTCS) for five years in 2012. The current phase of the FTCS has two objectives: to preserve the gains in tobacco control made since 2001 and to maintain the downward trend in smoking prevalence. Priorities include: • supporting the pan-Canadian quitline and web portal to help inform Canadians about the availability of cessation services, and to support provinces and territories (P/Ts) in their efforts to provide cessation services; • on-Reserve First Nations and Inuit tobacco control initiatives; • marketing, awareness and outreach campaign to encourage cessation; • introducing matched funding and pay-for-performance for chronic disease focused grants and contributions; and • continuing coordination and support for Canada’s membership in the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO-FCTC). The current phase of the FTCS expires on March 31, 2018. Public consultations on the future of tobacco control were carried out in 2017 and steps are underway to renew the strategy. Canada has a comprehensive tobacco control environment with responsibilities shared by multiple levels of government. In addition to federal initiatives, all provinces and territories (P/Ts) currently have tobacco control legislation in place, some with restrictions beyond those found in the federal Tobacco Act. For example, a number of Canadas provinces and territories have enacted legislation addressing electronic cigarettes. Rules on smoke-free spaces are generally the responsibility of P/T and municipal governments, with the exception of federal workplaces and federally regulated spaces, such as banks and commercial aircraft. All P/Ts also have extensive tobacco control strategies in place. P/T spending on tobacco control is estimated to represent more than half of the total tobacco control expenditure in Canada. P/T roles in tobacco control and health care service delivery will be taken into consideration in the development of the next phase of the FTCS. Recent federal initiatives on tobacco: The federal government has implemented nearly all of the available measures recognized by the WHO as good practices in tobacco control. Recent federal initiatives include: Flavouring additives • In 2009, Canada became the first country in the world to ban the use of certain additives, including flavours like chocolate and bubble gum in cigarettes, little cigars and blunt wraps that were making these tobacco products more appealing to youth. • The Schedule to the Tobacco Act was amended in 2009 to further restrict the use of flavouring additives in additional cigar types that appeal to youth. Building on changes that came into force in 2009 and 2015, which banned the use of certain additives, including flavours like chocolate and bubble gum to make them less attractive to youth, the Government of Canada finalized amendment to the Tobacco Act in 2017 to ban the use of menthol in cigarettes, blunt wraps and most cigars sold on the Canadian market. Graphic health warnings • In 2000, Canada became the first country in the world to require pictorial health warnings on tobacco packages. In 2011, Health Canada increased the size of the graphic health warning messages from 50% to 75% of the front and back of cigarette and little cigar packages. The messages also include the toll-free pan-Canadian quitline number and web address to inform smokers about the availability of cessation services. • Regulations to introduce a new rotation of graphic health warning messages are under development. Advertising prohibitions: • The advertising of tobacco products has been further restricted by prohibiting advertising in Canadian publications that are typically viewed by young persons. Provinces and territories have also taken action to ban tobacco retail displays. In the province of Quebec, in November, 2015, royal assent was granted for Bill n°44 : An Act to bolster tobacco control. This act introduced restrictions unique to Quebec regarding the advertising of tobacco products by tobacco manufacturers/importers/wholesalers directed at retailers. Increased outreach as part of the 2012-2017 FTCS renewal: • A marketing, awareness, and outreach campaign has been implemented with a focus on encouraging cessation behaviour for young adult smokers ($4.8M over five years). Contraband tobacco • A new Criminal Code offence with mandatory penalties of imprisonment for repeat offenders was created in 2014 to combat the trafficking and cross-border smuggling of contraband tobacco. These illegal, lower-priced cigarettes fund criminality and undermine tax and public health measures put in place to reduce tobacco use. Plain Packaging Canada is committed to introduce plain packaging requirements for tobacco products. Health Canada undertook consultations in 2016 with partners and stakeholders, including provinces and territories, on the development of a proposal for plain packaging. A bill to enable plain and standardized packaging of tobacco products was introduced in parliament in November, 2016.

France Le fonds de lutte contre le tabac, créé par le décret n°2016-1671 du 5 décembre 2016 au sein de la Caisse nationale de l’Assurance Maladie, contribue au financement d’actions de lutte contre le tabagisme au niveau local, national et international en cohérence avec les orientations du PNLT. Il permet de définir un cadre de financement stratégique qui s’est traduit par un plan d’actions. Depuis 2019, l’objet du Fonds a été élargi et il est devenu le fonds de lutte contre les addictions - tabac, alcool et substances illicites- (présidé par la CNAM autour d’une gouvernance DGS-DSS-DGOS-CNAM-MILDECA), En juin 2016, une instruction aux ARS leur a demandé de décliner localement le PNRT. Ainsi, dans la totalité des Agences régionales de santé (ARS) existe dorénavant un programme régional de réduction du tabagisme (P2RT) ainsi qu’une gouvernance régionale. En 2017, les actions de prévention et d’aide à l’arrêt prévues dans le cadre du PNRT ont été poursuivies et amplifiées. La France aura été le deuxième pays au monde à rendre effective l’obligation de paquets neutres pour les cigarettes et le tabac à rouler. La gouvernance régionale s’est développée : 14 ARS se sont armées d’un programme régional de réduction du tabagisme (P2RT) qui s’inscrit, pour 12 d’entre eux, dans le Programme Régional de Santé 2018-2022 (PRS). 11 ARS ont un parcours de santé addictions dans le PRS. Les P2RT et l’opération emblématique #Moissanstabac ont créé une mobilisation nouvelle d’un grand nombre d’acteurs, au plus proche de la population. Créé au premier janvier 2017, le nouveau fonds de lutte contre le tabac sera alimenté en 2018 par une contribution sociale issue de la distribution du tabac. Cela permettra de financer des actions dans les champs de la recherche, de la prévention, ainsi que soutenir les initiatives de la société civile et épauler les Agences régionales dans le déploiement de leurs P2RT. En février 2014, le Président de la République a annoncé son souhait de disposer dun programme national de réduction du tabagisme. En septembre 2014, Madame Marisol Touraine, ministre en charge de la santé a annoncé les principales mesures du PNRT En février 2015 a été publié le PNRT : http://social-sante.gouv.fr/IMG/pdf/PNRT2014-2019.pdf Il constitue le premier programme national dédié spécifiquement à la lutte contre le tabac.

Panama Panamá ratificó el Protocolo para la Eliminación del Comercio Ilícito de Productos de Tabaco mediante Ley No. 27 de 1 de julio de 2017. Con miras a su implementación el Ministerio de Salud creó la Comisión Nacional Interinstitucional para la Implementación de este protocolo mediante Decreto Ejecutivo 237 de 24 de junio de 2019. Del 25 al 28 de noviembre de 2019, Panamá fue país anfitrión de la primera reunión del grupo de trabajo sobre seguimiento y localización de productos de tabaco, lo que facilitó la participación activa del MINSA y de la Autoridad Nacional de Aduanas (ANA). Con el cambio de las autoridades (julio de 2019) se ha continuado con el fortalecimiento de la coordinación gubernamental entre el MINSA y la ANA, para lo cual se han realizado múltiples reuniones de coordinación con la ANA para determinar las fortalezas y debilidades que tenemos como país para la implementación del protocolo. Se esta elaborando el plan de trabajo para la implementación priorizando los mandatos del protocolo con términos de aplicación establecidos. También se ha identificado la necesidad de ajustar algunos marcos legales, normas, procedimientos y regulaciones nacionales específicas de la ANA. Se incluyó el requerimiento de licencias para la comercialización de productos de tabaco y equipos de fabricación en el Proyecto de Ley 136. Este proyecto fue aprobado en tercer debate pero su contenido no cumplía con las disposiciones del CMCT y sus directrices, por lo que a solicitud del Ministerio de Salud fue vetada parcialmente por la Presidencia de la República en junio de 2019. De igual forma, este mismo proyecto de Ley incluía artículos que permitirán regular contenidos y emisiones de productos de tabaco. Esto de cara a avanzar en la implementación de las directrices de los artículos 9 y 10 del CMCT. Una limitante clara es que en el debate se ha dado una amplia participación de representantes de la IT que incluían a sus abogados, consultores, lobistas y empleados de la propia IT. En cuanto a los ambientes libres de humo se realiza monitoreo del cumplimiento a través de encuestas (GYTS y GATS) como mediciones utilizando los monitores SidePack AM 510 y el Dust - Track para medir partículas PM 2.5 en los sitios donde está prohibido fumar. Además se atienden quejas de residentes por vecinos que fuman, aunque en el interior de las viviendas no está prohibido fumar, el MINSA realiza las mediciones a fin de verificar el nivel de contaminación ambiental por humo de tabaco. Una vez detectada las partículas PM 2.5 se orienta a los afectados sobre el procedimiento a seguir para gestionar la evaluación de su salud, acción legal a ejercer ante los gobiernos locales (jueces de paz) y ante la administración de las viviendas sujetas al régimen de propiedad horizontal. Desde diciembre de 2017 se incluye la medición de gases vinculados a la combustión del tabaco, utilizando el equipo Tiger - ION con la finalidad de identificar trazas de emisiones tóxicas que forman parte del humo de tabaco. Además, en el proyecto de Ley 136 se consignaban disposiciones para ampliar las prohibiciones de fumar contempladas en la Ley 13 de 2008, específicamente en lo referente a prohibir el consumo de productos de tabaco en ambientes abiertos de acceso público y destinados a la concurrencia de personas, tales como terrazas, vestíbulos, patios internos, balcones, miradores, plataformas y otros similares. Este mismo proyecto trataba sobre el establecimiento del Empaquetado Sencillo de los Productos de Tabaco. El precitado proyecto de Ley fue aprobado en III debate y vetado por el Presidente de la República, a solicitud del Ministerio de Salud debido a que el mismo no cumplía con las disposiciones del CMCT. A la fecha todo parece indicar que debido a los cambios en la conformación del cuerpo de diputados de la Asamblea Nacional será necesario generar un nuevo proyecto de Ley que aborde los temas tratado en el proyecto de Ley 136. Mantenemos la prohibición de la comercialización, en todo el territorio nacional, de los dispositivos electrónicos administradores o no de nicotina, los mismos no son considerados productos de tabaco como se indica en el artículo 1 de la Resolución 2742 de agosto de 2017 (ubicar la resolución en mención en la siguiente dirección. http://www.gorgas.gob.pa/SitioWebTabaco/Inicio.htm. ). La precitada resolución establece la ampliación de la prohibición de comercialización a cualquier elemento que pueda ser utilizado como componente, repuesto o recarga de estos sistemas. Se ha prohibido el uso de estos dispositivos en todos aquellos ambiente donde esta prohibido fumar (Decreto 1838 de 5 de diciembre de 2014). El 8 de marzo de 2018 se aprobó la Resolución 0554 de la Dirección General de Salud Pública que establece que las pipas de agua, narguiles, shisha, cachimbas o de cualquier otra denominación que en el futuro se tenga, son productos de tabaco y dicta otras disposiciones. La resolución en comento advierte que como productos de tabaco están sometidas a la prohibición total de la publicidad, promoción y patrocinio que se aplica a los productos de tabaco según lo dispuesto en la Ley 13 de 2008. Así mismo indica que estos dispositivos deberán tener una calcomanía con la advertencia sanitaria "Fumar este Tipo de Producto puede causar la muerte". Reiterándose el indicativo dispuesto en el artículo 6 de la Ley 13 de 2008, referente a este mensaje en los productos de tabaco. Los importadores deben contar con la aprobación previa del MINSA para la comercialización de estos productos. Esta resolución puede ser encontrada en la siguiente dirección: http://www.gorgas.gob.pa/SitioWebTabaco/Inicio.htm De manera regular las autoridades de salud a nivel local y regional realizan inspecciones rutinarias y programadas para la vigilancia del cumplimiento de la ley de manera integral; así como operativos a las áreas de mayor riesgo. Se continúan con la investigación de las denuncias o sospechas de violación a la norma de control de tabaco vigente, las cuales se reciben a través de la línea caliente 311, correo electrónico o de cualquier otro medio que la población tenga disponible. Como parte del Sistema Mundial de Vigilancia del Consumo de Tabaco y en cumplimiento a las disposiciones de los artículos 20 y 21 del CMCT, se ha desarrollado la cuarta versión de la Encuesta Mundial de Tabaco en Jóvenes a finales de 2017, cuyos resultados se ubican en https://panamalibredetabaco.com/consumo-de-tabaco1 y la Encuesta Mundial de Tabaco en Adultos 2013, ambas con financiamiento nacional y apoyo técnico de CDC y OPS/OMS e informe final de ambos estudios. Adicionalmente, se realizó una versión específica de la GYTS para la Comarca Kuna Yala debido a que esta Comarca es la de mayor prevalencia de consumo de productos de tabaco en el país, según resultados por región de la GATS, 2013. Los resultados de los siguientes informes se consignan en: Informe Nacional - Encuesta Mundial de Tabaco en Jóvenes. Panamá.

En el marco de disposiciones aprobadas durante la COP 6 en Rusia, Panamá ha continuado apoyando las diversas propuestas para el abordaje en la Asamblea Mundial de la Salud (ASM) sobre lo relacionado con la sinergia que se requiere entre la ASM y la COP. En la Corte Suprema de Justicia de Panamá se han presentado desde el 2008 a la fecha 9 demandas contra el Ministerio de Salud. Estas demandas han tenido un fallo favorable al Ministerio de Salud, fortaleciendo la capacidad institucional para enfrentar los retos que impone la vigilancia y control de la aplicación de la normativa vigente en materia de control de tabaco. Panamá ratificó el Protocolo para la Eliminación del Comercio Ilícito de Productos de Tabaco mediante Ley No. 21 de 1 de julio de 2017. Con miras a su implementación el Ministerio de Salud realizó un taller con la Autoridad Nacional de Aduanas (ANA) para determinar las fortalezas y debilidades que tenemos como país para su implementación. Entre los aspectos más relevantes figuran la necesidad de ajustar algunos marcos legales nacionales, normas, procedimientos y regulaciones específicas de la ANA. Se ha incluido el requerimiento de licencias para la comercialización de productos de tabaco y equipos de fabricación en el Proyecto de Ley 136 que actualmente se debate en la Asamblea Nacional de Diputados.

Ubicar la resolución en mención en la siguiente dirección. http://www.gorgas.gob.pa/SitioWebTabaco/Inicio.htm Dando seguimiento a las disposiciones del CMCT las autoridades del Ministerio de Salud en coordinación con la Oficina de Tratados de la Cancillería han iniciado el proceso para la ratificación del Protocolo para la Eliminación del Comercio Ilícito de Productos de Tabaco. En este sentido, el MINSA realizó: • reuniones de coordinación con la Procuradora General de la Nación para viabilizar esta gestión, toda vez que el instrumento en cuestión establece en su artículo 14 delitos que no están tipificados en el Código Penal panameño. • Reuniones de coordinación con el Director General de Aduanas y su equipo de trabajo con el objetivo de intercambiar información e iniciar un proceso de análisis de la aplicabilidad de los componentes técnicos del protocolo. Se han realizado reuniones conjuntas con empresas particulares, no vinculadas a la industria tabacalera, para conocer los sistemas de localización y seguimiento de productos de tabaco. • Se logró la inclusión de los delitos sobre comercio ilícito de productos de tabaco en la modificación del Código Penal, lo que era un requisito para poder avanzar en la ratificación del protocolo. • El protocolo fue aprobado en Consejo de Gabinete. Esta en esos momentos en el Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores para ser remitido a la Comisión de Relaciones Exteriores de la Asamblea Nacional de Diputados. De igual forma, se cuenta con un proyecto de Ley en la Comisión de Salud de la Asamblea Nacional de Diputados para regular contenidos y emisiones de productos de tabaco, aunque hasta el momento no se ha logrado viabilidad política para avanzar en el debate. Esto de cara a avanzar en la implementación de las directrices de los artículos 9 y 10 del CMCT. Una limitante clara fue que en la primera convocatoria para el debate se dio una amplia participación de representantes de la IT que incluían a sus abogados, consultores, lobistas y empleados de la propia IT.

Dentro del marco legislativo la Autoridad Nacional de Aduanas esta modificando su ley que sanciona las infracciones aduaneras, incluidos los aspectos relacionados al contrabando de cigarrillos y otros productos de tabaco con finalidad de que dichas sanciones sean más severas. Como ejemplo en el artículo 49 de la Ley 30 de 1984 contempla a devolución de la mercancía luego de pagar sus impuestos y una multa, en tanto que en la nueva legislación se elimina la devolución cuando se trata de productos de tabaco. De igual forma, se esta incrementando el pie de fuerza y se esta capacitando al equipo de inspectores para el mejor desempeño de sus funciones de vigilancia y control del contrabando de productos de tabaco. Se proyecta la realización de actividades de capacitación dirigidas al personal de operaciones aduaneras y al equipo legal de la Dirección de Fiscalización y Prevención Aduanera. Se han realizado múltiples actividades de cooperación técnica y financiera, según lo disponen los artículos 22 y 26 del CMCT. En este marco se apoya al Secretariado de la COP.

Philippines In line with the implementation of WHO FCTC and the National Tobacco Control Strategy (2017-2022) of the Philippines, the identification of indicators and targets were done in consultation with the key stakeholders as part of the efforts in enhancing the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Framework for WHO FCTC. As part of the M&E efforts, thematic discussions were also conducted in order to monitor/review progress and come up with unified agenda on the following areas of implementation: 1. Research and Service Delivery 2. Advocacy and Communication 3. Policy and Governance The Philippines also participated in the Implementation Review Mechanism (IRM) Pilot Exercise Questionnaire for the Global Strategy of WHO FCTC. This helped in reviewing the current status of implementation on other areas that were not covered in the previous reporting years. Sub-committees of the National Tobacco Control Coordinating Committee (NTCC) regularly convened meeting to harmonize strategies and address current challenges. Likewise, there is a proposal to better implement coordinating mechanism of the FCTC through the development of Administrative Order on Achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG3) through the Full Implementation of the WHO-FCTC. In December 14, 2015, the management of the National Tobacco Control Program was transferred from the Health Promotion and Communication Service (HPCS) to the Disease Prevention and Control Bureau (DPCB) by virtue of Department Order 2015-0270. As of the last report in 2014, seven (7) out of thirteen (13) SWAT sub-committees were active, with the Sub-committee on Article 5.3 as the most active.

Basing on the above mentioned Act on public health, the Regulation of Council of Ministers on the National Health Program for period 2016-2020 is being processed currently. The Program is to support the existing health care system funded from the budget of the National Health Fund and focused primarily on treatment of diseases with less attention given to preventive interventions. The key premise of this Program is to enable a practical implementation of the general health policy pursued by the European Union and WHO highlighting the concept of health in all public policies, since health should not be confined solely to the health policy. In addition, the Program attributes a more prominent role to publicly funded health promotion and preventive interventions. WHO European Region

Serbia No progress has been made. The amendments to the Law on Protection of the Citizens from Exposure to Tobacco Smoke (2010) that completely ban smoking in all enclosed premises, including hospitality sector, prepared by Working Group appointed by the Ministry of Health in December 2015 along with the National Committee for Tobacco Control have not been considered yet. The same is with the draft version of the Tobacco Control Strategy 2016-2025 with accompanying Action Plan 2016- 2020 which were submitted to the Ministry of Health in July 2016. The focus of the Strategy was to include as much as possible all effective and scientifically approved measures of tobacco control that are mentioned in the WHO FCTC and EU directives. However, so far they were not taken into consideration. The Working Group appointed by the Ministry of Health in October 2015 along with the National Committee for Tobacco Control prepared the amendments to the Law on Protection of the Citizens from Exposure to Tobacco Smoke (2010), with two main changes: - total smoking ban in all enclosed public and working places, including the whole hospitality sector, with no designated smoking rooms allowed anywhere; and - establishment of a multisectorial National Tobacco Control Council with a mandate to coordinate and evaluate all tobacco control activities in the country. Since then, the Draft version of the amendments to the Law was not considered within different relevant ministries nor put into the Parliament procedure for adoption. The National Committee for Tobacco Control prepared draft version of the Tobacco Control Strategy 2016-2025 with accompanying Action Plan 2016- 2020 and they were submitted to the Ministry of Health in July 2016. The focus of the Strategy was to include as much as possible all effective and scientifically approved measures of tobacco control that are mentioned in the WHO FCTC and EU directives. However, so far they were not taken into consideration. The new National Committee for Tobacco Control was appointed in August 2015 with the mandate to intensify two main activities. First, to prepare amendments to the Law on Protection of the Citizens from Exposure to Tobacco Smoke (2010), and second to update the Strategy of Tobacco Control of the Republic of Serbia for the period 2016-2025. Since then the National Committee on Tobacco Control has finished the draft version of the amendments to the Law on Protection of the Citizens from Exposure to Tobacco Control. Two main changes have been proposed: - total smoking ban in all enclosed public and working places, including the whole hospitality sector, with no designated smoking rooms allowed anywhere; and - establishment of a multisectorial National Tobacco Control Council with a mandate to coordinate and evaluate all tobacco control activities in the country. The Draft version of the amendments to the Law has been discussed so far within the different sectors of the Ministry of Health. The National Committee for Tobacco Control has been revising the previous Tobacco Control Strategy 2007-2015 and working on the new version for the period 2016-2025, with the aim to include as much as possible all effective and scientifically approved measures of tobacco control that are mentioned in the WHO FCTC and EU directives.

Singapore The multi-pronged approach employed by the National Tobacco Control Programme (NTCP) strives to reduce both the demand and supply of tobacco. This includes taxation, tobacco control legislation, public education and the provision of smoking cessation services. Many of these efforts are through collaborative partnerships with governmental and non-governmental agencies, at both regional and international levels. In addition, the NTCP is moving towards a more ground-up approach, encompassing new media strategies and advocacy in delivering programmes to reach target populations in recognition of the fact that the buy-in and the participation of our target population is key to an effective programme. HPB, which is the national focal point for tobacco control, works together with partner agencies such as the Health Sciences Authority, which enforces licensing regime of tobacco sellers; the National Environment Agency, which enforces ban of smoking in certain places and the Singapore Customs, which enforces licensing of trade in tobacco and regulates border control of any tobacco products. A ban on shisha came into effect on 28 Nov 2014. As a transitional measure, existing licensed tobacco importers and retailers who imported or sold shisha tobacco were allowed to continue importing and retailing shisha until 31 July 2016. This was to allow them ample time to deplete their stock and restructure their businesses away from shisha. From 1 Aug 2016, no importers or retailers were allowed to import or retail shisha. In addition, a two-phased ban came into force to prohibit the sale, distribution and offer for sale of emerging tobacco products. The first phase that was implemented on 15 Dec 2015 covered products which were not available in Singapore (e.g. dissolvable tobacco). The second phase was implemented on 1 Aug 2016 to include products that were already sold in Singapore (e.g. gutkha). In 2016, MOH amended the Tobacco (Control of Advertisements and Sales) Act (TCASA) to ban the Point-of-Sale Display (POSD) of tobacco products at retail outlets. This came into effect on 1st August 2017. In Nov 2017, the TCASA was amended to increase the minimum legal age (MLA) for the purchase, use and possession of tobacco products from 18 to 21. This change will take place in a stepwise fashion, whereby the MLA will be increased yearly from 2019 to 2021 (i.e. MLA will be 19 from 1 Jan 2019, 20 from 1 Jan 2020 and finally 21 from 1 Jan 2021). The TCASA was also amended to prohibit the purchase, use and possession of imitation and emerging tobacco products, in addition to their sale, distribution and offer for sale, on 1st Feb 2018. On the 7th March 2019, the TCASA was amended to empower Minister to introduce Regulations on the appearance, packaging and labelling of tobacco products (standardised packaging). On the 1st July 2019 Regulations for the appearance, packaging and labelling of tobacco products (standardised packaging) were gazetted and will be in force on the 1st July 2020.
