Undertaking

Colin Thompson (ABN 27 120 308 204) is a supplier and retailer of a wide range of tobacco products which it retails directly to consumers through his store within the Darwin CBD.

As part of his product range, Mr Thompson sold retail tobacco products.

These products are subject to a prescribed consumer product information standards outlined in the Trade Practices (Consumer Product Information Standards)(Tobacco) Regulations 2004.

The retail tobacco products supplied by Mr Thompson had an adhesive label affixed to the package which obscured the prescribed consumer product information being that of the Quitline logo and number along with the mandatory graphic and health warning.

The ACCC was concerned that the obscuring of these health warnings was not in the public interest as the purpose of this information is to promote quit smoking campaigns and to increase customer knowledge of the health effects of smoking.

Following this advice Mr Thompson removed the sticker obscuring the health message from the effected retail tobacco products.
