Public Health Act of 1925 (as amended)
COMMENTS: Article 193 of the Public Health Act authorizes the Minister of health to "make such regulations as he thinks necessary in the interest of public health." It is under this grant of power that the regulations restricting tobacco products were issued. In addition, the Public Health Act grants the Sanitary Authority and the police the power to enforce public health regulations. The Public Health Act has been amended several times. The version available here is current through the 2006 amendments made by Law No. 30 of 2006 and Government Notice No. 232 of 2006.
