Botswana International standards are used to regulate the contents and emissions since most of the products are imported. The local produced products are exported and they have to comply with the stadards of where they are being exported. The only challenge we have is of products that get into our country illegaly. Some of them do not have enough information for the consumer. That being the case we have ensured that our upcoming law takes care of this.

Canada In March 2019, Canada amended the Tobacco Reporting Regulations, which set out the requirements for the reporting of information on the sales, manufacturing processes, ingredients, constituents, emissions, research and development activities as well as promotional activities undertaken by tobacco manufacturers. The amendments served to update and clarify the requirements in order to make them more relevant to the current environment and to eliminate redundant requirements; updated the official testing methods for the sampling and testing of tobacco products to reflect technological advances. The amendments are expected to enhance the quality and completeness of the information submitted by the tobacco industry. In 2000, Canada enacted the Tobacco Reporting Regulations, which set out requirements for the reporting of information on sales, manufacturing processes, ingredients, toxic constituents, toxic emissions of tobacco products sold in Canada, as well as research activities and promotional activities undertaken by tobacco manufacturers and importers. The Tobacco Reporting Regulations enacted in 2000 require that tobacco manufacturers report to the Government the content and emissions of consumer tobacco products sold in Canada. Under the previous labelling requirements, the toxic emissions statements displayed numerical values for six toxic emissions (tar; nicotine; carbon monoxide; formaldehyde; hydrogen cyanide; and, benzene). Research conducted by Health Canada has shown that the numerical values were not clearly understood by some smokers and most had little idea what the range of numbers displayed for each chemical meant. The numerical values have been replaced by four text-based statements that provide clear, concise and easy to understand information about the toxic substances found in tobacco smoke.

European Union In the area of ingredients reporting (i.e. disclosure), Directive 2014/40/EU foresees a common electronic format for the reporting of tobacco ingredients, including both tobacco leaf and ingredients, including additives. For certain additives on a priority list, more in-depth studies and their disclosure is required by June 2018. The list of these additives (contained in cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco) for which enhanced reporting obligations shall be set up by the Commission taking into account additives, a) for which initial indications, research, or regulation in other jurisdictions exist suggest that they contribute to the toxicity or addictiveness of the products concerned, impart a characterising flavour; facilitate inhalation or nicotine uptake; or lead to the formation of substances that have CMR properties, and b) which are amongst the most commonly used additives by weight or number.
