Enforcement Authorities

Authorized Agency
Duty to Enforce

Public and private organizations and institutions

Smoke free areas within their own organizations or institutions

The law requires public and private sector organizations and institutions to record violations and impose fines. However, the law does not set forth the scope of the responsible entities’ authority for investigations and inspections.

To align with FCTC Art. 8 and the FCTC Art. 8 Guidelines, the law should clearly designate an enforcement agency and impose a duty to enforce upon that agency.
