Here's what smokers must be looking for when buying a cigarette starting March

Without the revised ‘SDPC’ mark, it's deemed illegal.

From 1 March 2013, all cigarettes sold in Singapore must carry the revised ‘SDPC’ (Singapore Duty-Paid Cigarette) mark. The new mark features a series of vertical  bars around the cigarette stick, a measure to allow enforcement officers and the  public to be able to better visibly differentiate duty-paid cigarettes from contraband  cigarettes. 

To facilitate manufacturers and retailers phase in the revised SDPC mark, Singapore Customs allowed the sales of the cigarettes bearing the revised mark from 1  December 2012. With effect from 1 March 2013, cigarettes without the revised  ‘SDPC’ mark will be deemed illegal.
