Plain Tobacco Packaging from 2020

On February 15, 2017, the Slovenian Parliament unanimously adopted the new Act on the Restriction on the Use of Tobacco and Related Products (“Tobacco Act”) that came into force on March 11, 2017.

With the new Tobacco Act, Slovenia has implemented the Directive 2014/40/EU (“Tobacco Products Directive”) into its legislation. Although the plain packaging provisions of the Tobacco Products Directive are not mandatory, Slovenia opted to introduce them and joined the group of countries with restrictive tobacco legislation. Plain packaging will become obligatory in Slovenia as of January 1, 2020.
