Overall Uruguay has good tobacco control measures in place, but there is still room for improvement to prevent tobacco industry interference. Hence, efforts related to Article 5.3 can be strengthened further:

  • A code of conduct that applies to all government officials when dealing with the tobacco industry must be implemented.
  • The tobacco industry must be required to submit information on marketing expenditures or other activity such as lobbying, political contributions and all other activities.
