Enforcement Authorities

Authorized Agency
Duty to Enforce

Inspectors designated by the Minister of Health

Enclosed public places, enclosed workplaces, public conveyances and the “parts of buildings and land ancillary” to healthcare facilities, residential care facilities, educational facilities, daycare facilities and preschools, and public transportation terminals

The law permits the Minister of Health to designate inspectors to enforce the law but does not state an affirmative duty to carry out enforcement.

To align with FCTC Art. 8 and the FCTC Art. 8 Guidelines, the law should clearly impose a duty to enforce and require a protocol for inspections.
