B) §. (53) (a) of the Public Health Law states that: “It is forbidden to smoke any tobacco products in public places, although it is permissible by a decision of the Minister upon the recommendation of the competent health director to specify a special place in which smoking is permitted in the public place provided that the public’s health and safety are taken into account and that this place is clearly declared in a prominent place using signs written in the Arabic language.” C) On the 25th of June 2020 the Minister of Health issued a decision No. (T U/35/211) that was circulated to other government officials to ban smoking in all indoor public places. Based on all forms of indoor smoking, which includes workplaces, is banned. In relation to Implementation: A)There are issues with implementing the legislation due to high fines in the Public Health Law. B) The Ministry of Health is the one that is tasked with enforcing and inspecting the Public Health Law but due to the extensive task, the MInistry is facing issues with fully implementing the FCTC. Therefore, there is an issue with the implementation of the total ban of all forms of indoor public smoking in public places. C)The Ministry of Health needs support in relation to resources to carry out inspections. The Ministry of Health is also communicating with other governmental agencies to coordinate and possibly delegate tasks in relation to areas that govern the ban of all forms of indoor smoking in public places. قانون الصحة العامة رقم 47 لسنة 2008 الذي يمنع التدخين في الاماكن العامة مع جواز تخصيص اماكن للمدخنين ضمن شروط معينة بموافقة معالي وزير الصحة ويتم الان تخصيص اماكن للمدخنين وغير المدخنين وبفصل تام وضمن شروط تحافظ على الصحة العامة للمدخنين وغير المدخنين والتي صدرت عام 2013 ونص عليها قانون الصحة العامة المعدل لعام 2017 قانون مراقبة سلوك الاحداث والذي يمنع البيع للاقل من 18 عام قانون السير والذي يمنع التدخين ويعاقب المدخن في المركبة العامة والسائق قانون الصحة العامة رقم 47 لسنة 2008 الذي يمنع التدخين في الاماكن العامة مع جواز تخصيص اماكن للمدخنين ضمن شروط معينة بموافقة معالي وزير الصحة قانون مراقبة سلوك الاحداث والذي يمنع البيع للاقل من 18 عام قانون السير والذي يمنع التدخين ويعاقب المدخن في المركبة العامة والسائق WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region

Workplace pursuant to this act means any closed area under the control of an employer where work and services are performed for the employer.

The Act allows smoking only in separate smoking rooms of the accommodation facilities and other facilities that provide overnight stays, in the residential rooms of the old peoples homes and in prisons, in separate smoking rooms of the psychiatric hospitals and in the rooms designed specially for smoking- the so called smoking rooms. It is not allowed to bring or serve food and drinks inside smoking rooms and they can comprise no more than 20% of the total area of the public or workplace.
