Draft Order on a ban on visible location and display, etc. of tobacco products, tobacco surrogates and herbal smoking products.
The Order lays down detailed regulations relating to the proposal that tobacco products, tobacco surrogates and herbal smoking products shall not be visible to consumers
at sales outlets, including on the internet, until a customer specifically asks about them.
It will, however, be possible to sell pipes visibly on the internet.
The sales outlets are free to choose the method to comply with the ban on display, but the Order among other things lays down that no direct or indirect advertising or information can be given on the fact that tobacco products, tobacco surrogates and herbal smoking products are sold at the sales outlet.
The Order also includes regulations on the content of the neutral lists that the sales outlet may provide with information on which products are sold and their prices.
The ban on display does not apply to physical shops which have specialised in the sale of cigars, pipes and pipe tobacco respectively, and the Order lays down
special regulations on this.
Finally, the Order includes separate regulations on the sale through digital solutions and online, as well as sale from self-service machines.
