Label Rules

May 25, 2014 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s Ceylon Tobacco Company Plc, a unit of British American Tobacco said it had gone to Supreme Court again over new labeling regulations, shortly after a court ruling that allowed graphical warnings. The recent court ruling allowed graphic labels covering 50 to 60 percent of the area of a pack which requires health ministry rules to be re-issued.

Ceylon Tobacco Company said in a stock exchange filing that the judgment did not give “clear or adequate directions on the remaining requirements” of the regulation.

It had filed a special leave to appeal in the Supreme Court, Friday.
