Smoke Free Businesses

Regulations state that smoking is illegal within public places and work places if these are wholly enclosed or substantially enclosed.

The smoking ban (in force in England since 1 July 2007) affects public premises including workplaces and work vehicles.

The law applies to staff, customers and visitors. It is the legal responsibility of whoever controls or manages smoke-free premises and vehicles to prevent people smoking in them.
