Australia Answer not provided On 26 February 2016, the Australian Government released a Post-Implementation Review (PIR) of Tobacco Plain Packaging. The PIR concluded that the measure is achieving its objectives of reducing smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke in Australia and is expected to have substantial public health outcomes into the future. The PIR considers the weight of the available evidence in the public domain from a variety of sources to inform the overall assessment of the measure’s impact and the conclusions reached. The PIR also considered an expert econometric analysis of the Roy Morgan smoking prevalence data, commissioned by the Commonwealth Department of Health and undertaken by Dr Chipty of Analysis Group Inc. (an economic and business consulting firm with particular expertise and experience in econometric analysis). The expert analysis of the Roy Morgan smoking prevalence data concluded: “the evidence shows that 2012 packaging changes are succeeding in reducing smoking prevalence beyond trend. In terms of order of magnitude, smoking prevalence is 0.55 percentage points lower over the period December 2012 to September 2015 than it would have been without the packaging changes.” The 2012 packaging changes considered were the updated and enlarged graphic health warnings and plain packaging. Over the post-implementation period from December 2012 to September 2015, Dr Chipty estimates that the packaging changes resulted in 108,228 fewer smokers.

Russian Federation В соответствии с пунктом 27 ТР ТС 035/2014 Евразийской экономической комиссией (Решение № 18 от 17 марта 2016 г.) утверждены эскизы предупреждений о вреде потребления табачных изделий и параметры их нанесения на потребительскую упаковку табачной продукции (далее соответственно – эскизы предупреждений). Эскизы адаптированы для каждого государства-члена ЕАЭС (общее количество эскизов – 72). Эскизы предупреждений направлены на информирование населения государств-членов ЕАЭС о разрушительных последствиях потребления табачных изделий и табачного дыма для здоровья человека и предназначены для нанесения на табачную продукцию, которая выпускается на территории Евразийского экономического союза. Report not provided В соответствии с пунктом 27 Технического регламента Таможенного союза «Технический регламент на табачную продукцию» (ТР ТС 035/2014, далее – Технический регламент) Минздрав России совместно с министерствами здравоохранения государств-членов в 2015 г. разработал и представил в Евразийскую экономическую комиссию эскизы предупреждений о вреде потребления табачных изделий и параметры их нанесения на потребительскую упаковку табачной продукции (далее соответственно – эскизы предупреждений). Эскизы адаптированы для каждого государства-члена ЕАЭС (общее количество эскизов – 72). Эскизы предупреждений направлены на информирование населения государств-членов ЕАЭС о разрушительных последствиях потребления табачных изделий и табачного дыма для здоровья человека и предназначены для нанесения на табачную продукцию, которая выпускается на территории Евразийского экономического союза. Предупреждения будут располагаться в верхней части упаковки табачных изделий и занимать не менее 50 % площади каждой основной стороны упаковки. Справочно: На сегодняшний день в Российской Федерации предупреждения в виде фотографических изображений размещаются только на задней стороне упаковки, занимая 50 % ее площади, а на передней стороне упаковки размещается текстовое предупреждение, занимающее 30 % площади упаковки. Эскизы и параметры их нанесения вынесены на повестку дня заседания Совета ЕЭК 17 марта 2016 г. для их утверждения. Учитывая сроки, в течение которых эскизы предупреждений должны быть нанесены производителем на табачную продукцию, а также принимая во внимание решение Коллегии ЕЭК от 12 мая 2015 г. № 53, которым утверждены переходные положения Технического регламента, продукция с нанесенными эскизами предупреждений должна появится на рынке осенью 2017 г. 2. В соответствии с пунктом 16 Технического регламента Минздравом России совместно с министерствами здравоохранения государств-членов ЕАЭС в 2015 г. разработан и направлен для утверждения в Евразийскую экономическую комиссию проект формы отчета о составе реализованных на территории государства-члена Евразийского экономического союза в течение отчетного календарного года табачных изделий и выделяемых ими веществах. Разработанный проект отчета позволит получить от изготовителей и импортеров табачной продукции информацию о составе табачных изделий и выделяемых ими продуктов, а также об их токсичности и аддиктивности, что позволит использовать эту информацию при разработке и реализации соответствующих мер, направленных на противодействие потреблению табака. 3. В соответствии с пунктом 3 Решения Совета ЕЭК от 12 ноября 2014 г. Минздравом России совместно с министерствами здравоохранения государств-членов ЕАЭС в 2015 г. подготовлен проект международного договора о запрете производства, ввоза и обращения некурительных табачных изделий на территориях государств – членов Евразийского экономического союза. Указанный проект международного договора был направлен в Евразийскую экономическую комиссию и был направлен на рассмотрение в государства-члены ЕАЭС. WHO European Region
