Pakistan: oral tobacco and nicotine pouch regulation, May 2024

Pakistan’s tobacco laws mainly focus on cigarettes, meaning they are not comprehensive.

Oral tobacco products are not specifically regulated, but some general provisions for tobacco products are applicable.

Nicotine pouches are not specifically regulated, and we understand they can be sold as a consumer product.

It is difficult to predict Pakistan’s future regulatory pathway, as the law-making process, in general, is opaque and policy might rapidly change, making it unpredictable.

This report examines the current regulatory framework in place in Pakistan for nicotine pouches and oral tobacco products, covering all policy areas.
