ACUNA A., Marisol. The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control of the World Health Organization. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2017, vol.33, n.3, pp.180-182. ISSN 0717-7348.

The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) is the first international treaty, negotiated under the umbrella of WHO as a coordinated response to the tobacco pandemic, and was unanimously approved by the 56th World Health Assembly in May 2003. It was signed by Chile on september 25, 2003 at United Nations headquarters in New York and it was ratified on june 13, 2005 becoming a law, on september 11, 2005. Since that date the regulatory framework of tobacco in Chile is given by: • The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC); • Decree Law 828 (27/12/1978), which regulates issues related to the production and commercialization of tobacco; • Law 19.419 (of 09/09/1995), which regulates advertising, promotion, sponsorship and smoke-free environments, among others. Although our country shows a big legislative production, it can be observed that this one has focused on some specific subjects, important matters are still pending established in the CMTC, in which it is necessary to advance: • Demand reduction measures related to tobacco dependence and cessation; • Tobacco Control Coordinating Committee: • Control of Illicit Trade.
