South Korea looking to expose cigarette ingredients

The government of South Korea is planning to introduce an anti-tobacco law that would require tobacco manufacturers to make all of their cigarette ingredients and additives public, according to a story in The Korea Times.

The Ministry of Health and Welfare said yesterday that it would be forwarding the ‘Tobacco Safety Management and Smoking Prevention Law’ to the National Assembly this year for approval.

Later in the story it was stated that, under the planned law, tobacco product makers would be required to release only a list of all harmful substances and additives included in cigarettes, and their quantities.

Under the current tobacco law, cigarette manufacturers are obliged to make public only information on nicotine and tar.

The new law will place more restrictions on how manufacturers produce, sell and advertise their products, and require them to include graphic health warnings on packs.
