FCA Policy Briefing: Cooperation with WTO on trade-related tobacco-control issues

27 Oct 2012

Key recommendations:

  • The Framework Convention Alliance recommends continued cooperation among the Convention Secretariat, the World Health Organization, the World Trade Organization and other relevant bodies;
  • Workshops and training materials on the intersection between tobacco control and trade should be continued and expanded. Uniform whole-of-government approaches to the issue should be encouraged;
  • In its ongoing trade-related technical assistance activities, the WHO should document and report on how tobacco industry legal challenges and threats of challenges impede implementation of the FCTC;
  • FCA agrees that efforts should be made to help individual governments ensure that tobacco control and FCTC implementation are protected under international trade and investment agreements.
