ITC Project

Australia

Australia was one of the ITC Project's original four ITC countries because it is a world-leader in tobacco control policies. It was the first country to implement plain packaging laws, mandating that cigarettes are sold in olive-green packages with a standard font, no industry logos, and prominent health warnings. Australia ratified the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) on October 27, 2004.
