The tobacco display restrictions come into effect on 6 April in England, Wales and Northern Ireland where all tobacco products on sale must be covered.
Tobacco must be kept out of sight until the purchase has been made.
BBPA said: “While the change won’t have the impact on pubs that it will have on shops, if you are selling cigarettes, it is certainly time to think about how you would remove them from view, such as placing them under the bar.”
For pubs selling cigarettes, they can still make customers aware they are available to purchase, but a sign naming the cigarette brand and price must be no larger than A3 in Helvetica font.
