Unit packets of products referred to in the Tobacco Act
The Tobacco Act strictly regulates the labelling of the unit packets of products subject to the Tobacco Act. With municipalities, Valvira monitors the compliance of the labelling of the unit packets of products subject to the Tobacco Act on the market with the law.
Tobacco products, electronic cigarettes, refill containers, herbal products for smoking, nicotine-containing liquids and nicotine-free liquids intended for vaporisation may be sold and otherwise supplied to consumers only in unit packets that comply with the Tobacco Act and the provisions issued based on it, as well as with relevant EU legislation.
Cigars may be handed over loose if they are accompanied by health warnings and warning pictures required by the Tobacco Act.
According to the Tobacco Act, the health warning labels of unit packets must be drawn up in Finnish and Swedish, with the exception of products sold on board a vessel or aircraft in professional international traffic or in a tax-free shop at an airport.
Further information about and instructions for the labelling of unit packets can be found at the end of this page.
