The Framework Convention Alliance for Tobacco Control

COP-3 policy briefing: article 5.3 industry interference

Written for the Third Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP3) to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control in Durban, South Africa, 17-22 November 2008.

This FCA policy briefing considers that effective guidelines for implementation of Article 5.3 (Protection of public health policies with respect to tobacco control from commercial and other vested interests of the tobacco industry) are urgently needed, and recommends that COP-3 revise the draft guidelines to adopt measures that provide strong, clear guidance to Parties when implementing this critical Article.
