Objects of Act

3 Objects of Act

(1) The object of this Act is to reduce the incidence of smoking and other consumption of tobacco products and non-tobacco smoking products, particularly by young people, in recognition of the fact that the consumption of those products adversely impacts on the health of the people of New South Wales and places a substantial burden on the State's health and financial resources.
(2) This Act aims to achieve that object by--
(a) regulating the packaging, advertising and display of tobacco products, non-tobacco smoking products and e-cigarettes, and
(b) prohibiting the supply of tobacco products, non-tobacco smoking products, e-cigarettes and e-cigarette accessories to children, and
(c) reducing the exposure of children to environmental tobacco smoke.
