This page provides you with important information on all aspects of tobacco legislation enforced by your local Trading Standards Service.

This Tobacco Guide provides you with advice on how to comply with the law and protect your business and it signposts you to where you can obtain further information or report any concerns you may have.

It is set out in sections dealing with:

  • Underage Sales of Tobacco
  • Tobacco Labelling
  • Counterfeit Tobacco
  • Niche Tobacco Products
  • Tobacco Advertising at the Point of Sale

These posters, Don't Try To Guess Ages and Actual Ages, demonstrate the difficulties in guessing someone's age only too well and can be a useful tool to remind staff of the need to ask for proof of age when purchasing tobacco and associated products. This Till Reminder poster may also be useful.
