The Tobacco Regulation Branch was set up in 1989 to administer and enforce the Tobacco (Control of Advertisements and Sale) Act (Chapter 309), with the objective of reducing the prevalence of smoking among Singaporeans. The act provides for the control on the following: Prohibition of the use of tobacco products by minor (persons under 18 years of age); Prohibition on the sale and supply of tobacco products to minors; Prohibition of advertisements and promotion relating to tobacco products and imitation tobacco products; Mandatory labelling of health warnings on tobacco products; Tar and nicotine content limits in cigarettes; and Licensing of tobacco importers/wholesalers and retailers.
