Oman’s Information Ministry has announced it has amended the regulations banning tobacco adverts in the Sultanate. Oman Ministerial Decision No. 43/2018 now bans all tobacco product adverts on all media platforms. The Ministerial Decision was issued by the Information Minister on 27 March and replaces Article 36 of the Implementing Regulations to the country’s 1984 Press and Publications Law with ‘it is prohibited to publish advertisements on tobacco products or their derivatives in all media, including print, electronic, audio-visual and any billboards, wherever they exist’. The Ministerial Decision has been issued in line with the Publications Law issued by Oman Sultani Decree No. 49/1984 and Oman Sultani Decree No. 20/2005 approving the Sultanate’s accession to the World Health Organisation’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
