The Standardised Packaging of Tobacco Products Regulations 2015 came into force on 20 May 2016. It is too soon to effectively evaluate the impact of this legislation; however, the Government is committed to completing and publishing a full post-implementation review before 20 May 2021, and to publishing subsequent reports at intervals not exceeding five years.
