The purpose of this manuscript was to review policy indicators of tobacco policy in the National Health Promotion Plan (Health Plan 2020) in Korea in the perspectives of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). In November, 2012, at the 5th Conference of the Parties to the FCTC held in Seoul, the protocol to eliminate illicit trade in tobacco products has been adopted by the Parties. Eradication of smuggling and illegal manufacturing of tobacco products would prevent revenues losses in addition to reduced accessibility of tobacco among youth and vulnerable population. Both price and non-price measures for demand reduction would need adequate outcome indicators. The tobacco policy indicators in the Health Plan 2020 in Korea included 6 category of objectives. They included reduction of adolescent smoking rate, reduction of adult smoking rate, delay of smoking initiation age, increased smoking cessation intention and quit attempts, reduction of secondhand smoking rate, and increasing designation of non smoking area. These indicators were related to plans of tobacco policy and programs, which included smoking prevention program, smoking cessation support program, protection of non-smokers program, and non-smoking environment development program. The indicators need to be used in related future tobacco control policy and program development. Those outcome measure development has to be more compatible with policy recommendations of the FCTC.
