Smoke-free or Not?
(Aligning with Best Practices on Smoke-free)
The Health Law requires that “local governments have to designate smoke-free zones in their area of jurisdiction.” Article 49 of the Government Regulation (PP) 109 of 2012 requires local governments to designate smoke-free zones. Some local governments have passed legislation requiring 100% smoke-free indoor public places with outdoor smoking areas, others have passed legislation requiring designated smoking rooms, while many others have not passed any legislation.
