Tobacco Retailer Educational Toolkit
The Health Sciences Authority [HSA] and Health Promotion Board [HPB] have jointly produced theTobacco Retailer Educational Toolkit to assist all retailers in Singapore to better comply with the tobacco sales laws and to adopt the "best practices" to avoid sale of tobacco products to persons below the age of 18 years.
To assist you and your employees, we have enclosed a training video in the toolkit. We strongly urge that you and your employees, who are involved in the sale of tobacco, view the training video by 30 June 2009. All new employees who join your retail outlet after 30 June 2009 are also encouraged to view the training video, if they will be involved in the sale of tobacco.
From 1 July 2009, HSA inspectors will be conducting checks at your tobacco retail outlet. Do take note that the tobacco retail licence of the outlet may not be renewed if the above requirement is not met.
