(7) Areas and spaces where smoking and the use of electronic cigarette and electronic device imitating smoking is prohibited, and areas, spaces and public places designated for smoking and for the use of electronic cigarette and electronic device imitating smoking must be clearly indicated as such by means of a symbol or other explicit sign, or a standard prohibitive sign or pictogram in the event of prohibition under fire regulations. (8) Where an enclosed area is designated for smoking under this Act, such smoking section can not be designated in the same room where a non-smoking area is also located. In the case of enclosed smoking areas, an adequate supply of fresh air must be ensured through windows or by the installation of other technical means, where tobacco smoke must not be allowed to enter the non-smoking areas. In the application of this Subsection, circulation of air shall be considered adequate if: a) a ventilation mechanism providing a steady supply of fresh air and the removal of spent air is installed, and b) the designation of the smoking areas and the air ventilation of the premises are designed in such a way that tobacco smoke flows directly from where it originates through the ventilation conduit without the non-smoking areas being in the direction of the flow.” According to the Act XLII of 1999: „Section 2 „(3) By way of derogation from Paragraph a) of Subsection (1), smoking is permitted without the designation of a smoking area: a) b) in the enclosed rooms of institutions providing accommodations, if let and expressly designated as a room for smokers; provided that smoking is not prohibited by other provisions of this Act or by fire regulations.” „(6) The government body in charge of the healthcare system and the fire protection authority shall inspect designated smoking areas for compliance with the provisions of this Act and from the point of view of fire prevention, respectively.

Luxembourg Des mesures efficaces de protection contre l’exposition à la fumée du tabac , comme celles de l’article 8 de la Convention-cadre de l’OMS, passent par une interdiction totale de fumer et par une élimination totale de la fumée du tabac dans un espace ou un environnement donnés , afin de créer un environnement à 100 % sans tabac. Le Luxembourg avait adopté en 2006 une première loi qui interdisait le tabagisme dans les lieux publics. Mais lautorisation de fumer avait été maintenue dans les discothèques et les cafés, en dehors des heures des repas. La loi de 2014 a banni cette autorisation et a généralisé linterdiction de fumer dans les lieux publics fermés . La législation est simple et claire et peut être appliquée dans la pratique. La société civile a joué un rôle central en soutenant les mesures de protection contre la fumée du tabac. La mise en oeuvre de la législation sur les environnements sans tabac ainsi que son application pratique et son impact font l’objet d’une surveillance et d’une évaluation annuelle. La protection de la population contre l’exposition à la fumée du tabac a encore été renforcée et étendue depuis : le nouveau projet de loi interdit ainsi de fumer dans toutes les aires de jeux pour enfants et dans les véhicules privés quand des mineurs de moins de 13 ans sont à bord. En outre, le vapotage de la cigarette électronique sera également interdit là ou il est interdit de fumer.

Sweden All indoor public places are smoke-free including restaurants and bars. Designated smoking rooms are however permitted, but only if they are situated so that nobody has to pass through them in order to reach other parts of the premises. No serving is allowed in the smoking rooms. Smoking rooms must have adequate ventilation to ensure that pollutants from the smoking do not spread to other parts of the premises. Some areas do not have legal support to be qualified as non-smoking areas, but due to successful policies these areas are perceived as non-smoking areas. There is a notion that the law is "complete", when it is more accurate to say that it has contributed to a national standard stating that certain areas should be smoke-free The Public Health Agency of Sweden has been commissioned to investigate and analyze the presence of passive smoking in public areas and particularly where children are present. The commission also involved providing proposals for measures to further reduce passive smoking in these areas. As indoor smoking is currently already regulated by the law, the commission entailed focusing on outdoor public places. A report on the findings and suggestions was published in 2014. http://www.folkhalsomyndigheten.se/documents/om-myndigheten/uppdrag-styrdokument/avslutade/slutrapport-utredning-framtida-rokfria-miljoer.pdf All indoor public places are smoke-free including restaurants and bars.
