Smokefree regulations

Five sets of smokefree regulations set out the detail of the smokefree legislation. Links to the final regulations documents are provided below.

The Government has produced an official guide to the smokefree law. In April, employing businesses that were actively trading and registered with Companies House were sent a full guidance pack by post. This pack also contained examples of compliant signage for smokefree premises and vehicles, a sample smokefree policy and suggested steps to take if someone smokes in a smokefree place. Further signage can be downloaded or ordered from this website.
