Enforcement Authorities

Authorized Agency
Duty to Enforce

Health Inspection Services, Municipal Health Authorities, Inspection of Games and the National Police of East Timor/Policia Nacional de Timor-Leste (PNTL)

All enclosed public places, work places, and public transportation

The law permits law enforcement 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.
