Sub-national Laws

Are sub-national jurisdictions permitted to have smoke-free laws?


If yes, are they allowed to be more stringent than national law?


If yes, do one or more sub-national jurisdictions have smoke-free laws more stringent than national law?


A brief comment on the extent of sub-national legislation:

Several sub-national jurisdictions have passed smoke free legislation. Some of these laws are more stringent than national law in some respects. For example, Dhofar Municipality prohibits caf├ęs for smoking tobacco in outdoor parks and gardens, a provision not contained in national legislation.
