British American Tobacco v. Tobacco and Alcohol Markets Regulatory Authority

British American Tobacco (BAT) requested the cancellation and stay of execution of a by-law giving the Turkish tobacco regulatory agency the authority to regulate warning labels. BAT also challenged the agency's regulation requiring combined warnings to cover not less than sixty-five percent of the surface on which they are placed. The Court upheld the agency's authority to determine packaging and labeling regulations, but granted the stay of execution of the regulation requiring combined warnings to cover not less than sixty-five percent of the area since it contradicts another law setting the lower limit at thirty to forty percent.
