Industry Interference: The FCTC Commitments

Under Article 5.3 of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), Parties agree that, in setting and implementing their public health policies with respect to tobacco control, they shall act to protect these policies from commercial and other vested interests of the tobacco industry.

This commitment is made recognizing ‘the need to be alert to any efforts by the tobacco industry to undermine or subvert tobacco control efforts and the need to be informed of activities of the tobacco industry that have a negative impact on tobacco control efforts’ (Preamble).
