It is prohibited to display tobacco products, tobacco substitutes, electronic cigarettes, nicotine-containing liquids and the trademarks thereof in the retail sale of tobacco products, tobacco substitutes, tobacco imitations, smoking accessories, electronic cigarettes and nicotine-containing liquids. In practice, displaying means keeping tobacco packets, trademarks or brand names intentionally on display to customers.
However, the display ban does not apply to sales outlets which have a separate entrance and which almost exclusively sell products referred to in the Tobacco Act, provided that the products and their trademarks are not visible from outside the sales outlet. This includes sales outlets such as tobacco stores and stores specialising in electronic cigarettes.
The display ban does not apply to the sales of products subject to the Tobacco Act on board a vessel engaged in international maritime transport.
At their request, a retailer may show purchasers a printed catalogue presenting the products or unit packets thereof on sale at the sales outlet. At the purchaser’s request, a retailer may also give a printed list of said products and their prices. The decree (593/2016) issued by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health on the retail of tobacco and corresponding products contains more detailed provisions on the format, content and layout of the catalogue and list.
