This report provides a selection of advanced practices in implementing Article 5.3. It draws from a variety of Parties’ experiences, including those recommended in the guidelines.

Others have introduced policies on certain measures recommended in the guidelines, such as transparency. This report also provides examples of the denormalization of the tobacco industry.
