The Law on Tobacco Control authorizes the Ministry of Health to appoint its staff as inspection officers. The law authorizes these inspection officers to monitor and issue fines for non-compliance. However, neither the Law on Tobacco Control nor the Sub-Decree on Smoking imposes a duty to inspect and enforce no-smoking provisions.
To align with FCTC Art. 8 and the FCTC Art. 8 Guidelines, the law should impose a duty to enforce on inspection officers from the Ministry of Health or other authorized agency.
