Australia Implementation of laws preventing persons smoking in private vehicles with children in the car. The states and territory governments have lead responsibility for smoking restrictions to prevent second-hand smoking in Australia. Smoking is now banned in all indoor public places and transport and most jurisdictions have begun to extend bans on smoking to some outdoor public places. In Victoria, from 1 August 2017, smoking was banned: • in outdoor areas at hospitality and food venues used for eating food. This includes footpath dining areas, courtyards and beer gardens during times food is being eaten, or is available to be eaten • in all outdoor areas at food fairs. A food fair is an event where the principal activity is the supply of food for consumption at the event • within 10 metres of a food stall or food vendor at organised outdoor event (other than a food fair). • to complement smoke-free outdoor dining, smoking is banned in an outdoor drinking area if any part of that area is within 4 metres of an outdoor dining area, unless separated by a wall of at least 2.1 metres high. This means the two areas can be separated by either: • a 4 metre buffer zone; or • a wall of at least 2.1 metres high. If the separation requirement is not met, smoking is banned in an outdoor drinking area. This law applies to the same venue as well as to neighbouring venues. From 1 July 2015, smoking was banned in all areas at Victorian prisons. The revised Smoke-Free Public Places Act 2003 came into force in the Australian Capital Territory on 18 March 2016. This streamlines the process for establishing new smoke-free areas by enabling the Chief Minister and responsible Minister to jointly declare new smoke-free areas and events via a disallowable instrument. Public play spaces and public transport waiting areas have since been declared as smoke free public places. The South Australian Government has introduced smoke-free outdoor dining areas under the Tobacco Products Regulation Act 1997, including partnering with local governments to introduce declared smoke-free declared outdoor. The states and territory governments have lead responsibility for smoking restrictions to prevent second-hand smoking in Australia. Smoking is now banned in all indoor public places and transport and most jurisdictions have begun to extend bans on smoking to some outdoor public places. In Victoria, from 13 April 2015, smoking was banned: • in outdoor areas of, and at and within 4 metres of entrances to, childcare centres, kindergartens and schools • at and within 4 metres of entrances to children’s indoor play centres and Victorian public premises (public hospitals, registered community health centres and certain Victorian Government buildings). From 1 July 2015, smoking was banned in all areas at Victorian prisons. Further, the ACT Government’s Future Directions for tobacco reduction in the ACT 2013-2016 (Future Directions) was launched on 31 May 2013 (World No Tobacco Day). Future Directions focuses on two key action areas for further development: restricting access to tobacco and restricting places of tobacco use. The Smoke-Free Public Places Amendment Bill 2016 was passed by the ACT Legislative Assembly on 10 March 2016 to facilitate the implementation of Future Directions. The revised Smoke-Free Public Places Act 2003, which came into force on 18 March 2016, streamlines the process for establishing new smoke-free areas by enabling the Chief Minister and responsible Minister to jointly declare new smoke-free areas and events via a disallowable instrument. The revised Act includes a framework to ensure a robust assessment of the costs and benefits associated with making a specific public place or event smoke-free. WHO Western Pacific Region

Bulgaria Tobacco control legislation covers all the provisions concerning Art.8. Tobacco control legislation covers all the provisions concerning art.8, but inadequate fines reduce their effectiveness. Enforcement is a great problem because neither legal acts nor decrees for implementation of the Laws provide clear requirements for fines and violation penalties. For example: no political will exist to impose effective control on smoking in indoor public places, especially in restaurants, cafes, bars etc. The change in the Health Act, where the ban was enacted, do not include penalties as "closure of the establishment for a defined time" or "revocation of the license". The privatized Bulgarian tobacco industry presents Bulgarian tobacco control with even bigger challenges than the ones we are witnessing now and they, no doubt, should be directly putting at risk total population health.

El Salvador Se ha desarrollado en 2020, la estrategia de consolidación territorial orientada a fortalecer las prohibiciones al consumo de tabaco en espacios públicos y privados del país, a fin de garantizar la protección de la salud de las personas no fumadoras; en respuesta a la necesidad de buscar una plena implementación del Art. 8 del Convenio Marco del Control de Tabaco (CMCT) y del Art. 6 de la Ley para el Control del Tabaco de El Salvador (LCPT). Se parte de reconocer que el territorio nacional está integrado por la suma de otros, que tienen características propias y particulares, lo que les brinda una riqueza y los diferencia entre sí por la suma de los elementos que los integran; tomando en cuenta que su composición está dada por la articulación de sistemas societales y sistemas ecológicos diversos. Por lo que, para garantizar el fortalecimiento de la aplicación de la medida en el país, se ha determinado la necesidad de establecer alianzas que permitan generar una amplia coordinación entre los actores presentes en los diversos niveles de organización territorial del Estado, con el fin de generar una implementación que tenga la capacidad de ser retroalimentada tomando en cuenta las diferencias que existen en el territorio nacional. La formulación e implementación de una estrategia orientada al fortalecimiento de las prohibiciones al consumo de tabaco y la protección del no fumador, para garantizar la plena implementación del Art. 8 del CMCT y del Art. 6 de la LCPT en El Salvador ha considerado las siguientes premisas: Para fortalecer la protección de la salud de población salvadoreña de los efectos de mortalidad, morbilidad y discapacidad que causa la exposición al humo de tabaco, se deben impulsar el establecimiento de alianzas con actores claves en la escala nacional, regional y local del país; como una estrategia de consolidación territorial para el cumplimiento del Art. 8 del CMCT y del Art.6 de la LPCT. Las alianzas establecidas deben ser realizadas con tomadores de decisión y líderes representantes de dichas escalas, con quiénes se tiene que genera un acercamiento para territorializar la importancia del cumplimento de los ambientes libres de humo de tabaco¸ como una medida de protección de la población del padecimiento de los efectos nocivos del consumo indirecto de tabaco. Dichas alianzas se consolidan mediante la integración de los actores en mesas de trabajo multisectorial a nivel nacional, regionales y municipales, quienes promueven la vigila y el desarrollo e implementación herramientas complementarias al Art. 6. para buscar la garantía de ambientes libres de humo de tabaco dentro de sus ámbitos de acción. Los actores son representantes de diversos sectores de gobierno, instituciones de educación superior y sociedad civil, con diversos grados de poder, acción e incidencia en las escalas territoriales; lo cual, permite que la medida sea fortalecida y retroalimentada de forma descendente, ascendente y transversal mediante su participación activa en las iniciativas del país. Al tener en cuenta los planteamientos anteriores, la estrategia puede ser enunciada como: Fortalecimiento de la implementación nacional de ambientes libres de humo, mediante el establecimiento de una coordinación sinérgica entre los actores claves para su aplicación en el territorio nacional.

Hungary In Hungary it is a milestone, that the Parliament decided the modification of the Act XLII of 1999 on the certain rules of the protection of non-smokers and of the consumption and marketing of tobacco products by extremely high – 84 % - qualified majority on 26 April 2011 whereby it has been forbidden since 1 January 2012 to smoke in enclosed public places and public spaces. According to the surveys and the monitorings it can be stated that the legislative amendment is highly appreciated (85%) in the society and people comply with it properly. By modifying the law, Hungary has joined those countries, which had implemented one of the most modern anti-smoking legislation of Europe. Based on it, they meet the criteria of the health policy, technical requirements and recommendations of the EU and the WHO. After the amendment of national property law, the average concentration of the indoor air pollution, which is mainly attributable to the tobacco smoke, has been reduced by 90% in the entertainment and dining areas. According to the results of the European population health survey done in 2014 it can be stated that there has been a further significant improvement in relation with the exposure to passive smoking compared to the 2009 data. Smoke-free Hungary Case Study (2014) The Smoking Focal Point (NOEFI) has prepared a case study (Smoke-free Hungary) on the impact assessment of the amendment of legislation on the protection of non-smokers with the support of WHO. The case study is aimed to present the actions effectively enhancing the reducement of smoking which were introduced in the past years.

Luxembourg Entrée en vigueur de la nouvelle loi antitabac du 13 juin 2017 qui ajoute les mesures suivantes, aux mesures déjà existantes, contre lexposition à la fumée du tabac: • Interdiction de fumer sur les aires de jeux : L’interdiction de fumer dans les lieux publics sera étendue sur les aires de jeux. Cette mesure constitue un moyen de prévention qui s’adresse à ceux qui sont les plus vulnérables face aux méfaits du tabac. En évitant l’exposition des enfants au tabagisme, cette interdiction vise à réduire le nombre d’enfants qui vont commencer à fumer plus tard. Elle oblige également les adultes à avoir un comportement responsable face aux enfants et à assumer leur devoir de protection. La loi contribue à responsabiliser les parents qui servent de modèles aux enfants. • Interdiction de fumer dans les véhicules privés quand des enfants de moins de 12 ans sont à bord. Toujours dans un esprit de protection des plus jeunes, l’interdiction de fumer sera étendue aux voitures privées transportant des mineurs de moins de 12 ans, en partie pour les mêmes raisons que celles invoquées pour l’interdiction de fumer sur les aires de jeux. Cette mesure permet aussi d’adresser le problème de la nocivité accrue du tabagisme passif qui pose un problème particulièrement aigu dans lespace extrêmement confiné quest lhabitacle dune voiture. Même des fenêtres ouvertes et une climatisation à puissance maximale ne permettent d’évacuer la fumée de façon satisfaisante. Cette mesure vise aussi à ne pas exposer les enfants à la vue d’adultes en train de fumer afin de ne pas induire l’acceptation inconsciente d’une image liée au tabagisme. • Interdiction du vapotage aux mêmes endroits où s’applique l’interdiction de fumer. Afin de protéger la santé des citoyens et des consommateurs contre les risques potentiels de la cigarette électronique, le projet de loi prévoit l’interdiction du « vapotage » aux mêmes endroits où s’applique l’interdiction de fumer. La cigarette électronique constitue un risque potentiel pour la santé, notamment à cause de ses ingrédients principaux. En effet, des composés organiques indésirables, car toxiques ou cancérigènes, se retrouvent dans la vapeur inhalée et émise. Le propylène glycol, la glycérine, et la nicotine, à des concentrations variables, en sont les principaux constituants. Les e-liquides libèrent des substances irritantes et classées comme toxiques pour les consommateurs comme pour l’entourage, mais dans une moindre mesure que la cigarette conventionnelle. En outre, comme l’utilisation de la cigarette électronique simule l’acte de fumer proprement dit, cela peut constituer une stimulation à l’initiation au tabagisme particulièrement chez les jeunes. Le vapotage « renormalise » également l’image de fumer en société, et anéantit des dizaines d’années d’efforts pour construire une société de demain sans tabac. Nous mentionnons également l’Art.L312-2. (3) du Code du travail Luxembourgeois qui vise la protection contre lexposition à la fumée du tabac : « L’employeur doit prendre toutes les mesures pour assurer et améliorer la protection de la santé physique et psychique des salariés, notamment en assurant des conditions de travail ergonomiques suffisantes, en évitant dans la mesure du possible le travail répétitif, en organisant le travail de manière appropriée et en prenant les mesures nécessaires afin que les salariés soient protégés de manière efficace contre les émanations résultant de la consommation de tabac d’autrui. » Entrée en vigueur de la nouvelle loi antitabac du 13 juin 2017 qui ajoute les mesures suivantes, aux mesures déjà existantes, contre lexposition à la fumée du tabac: • Interdiction de fumer sur les aires de jeux : L’interdiction de fumer dans les lieux publics sera étendue sur les aires de jeux.

Panama Se implementó el programa de Calidad de Aire Interior y Exterior, para el control de ambientes 100% libres de humo de tabaco, en establecimientos de interés sanitario, llevados a cabo por los inspectores de salud y los funcionarios de protección de alimentos, para el cumplimiento de la normativa del Control de Tabaco, los cuales se realizan de una manera científica y tecnológica con los medidores de partículas, Sidepak AM510, para detectar la concentración de PM 2.5, la cual es el tamaño de las partículas de tabaco. Adicionalmente, se adquirieron equipos de mayor capacidad DUST Track que mide partículas PM 1, PM 2.5 y PM10 y PST en forma simultánea y realiza muestreo de los componentes químicos y biológicos que se encuentren en el aire. También se adquirió el equipo Tiger ION que mide componentes químicos que han sido de utilidad para la atención de quejas en establecimientos de interés sanitario. Se cuenta con equipos para medición de parámetros ambientales. Con la adquisición de 16 unidades de SidePack para la medición de partículas PM 2.5 en el 2014, hemos logrado contar con equipos especializados que apoya la vigilancia y control de los ambientes 100% libres de humo de tabaco, pues los resultados de las mediciones se emplean para sustentar la aplicación de sanciones en aquellos establecimientos que violan la normativa existente. Se han realizado dos rondas de capacitación teórico - práctica en las 15 regiones de salud que incluyen a inspectores de saneamiento ambiental y de protección de alimentos para el uso de los equipos. Se cuenta con una programación de inspecciones para el desarrollo de operativos acompañados de la medición de partículas a fin de valorar en forma cualitativa y cuantitativa la calidad ambiental y por ende la contaminación por tóxicos de los productos fumados de tabaco, toda vez que en ambientes cerrados la detección de partículas PM 2.5 se asocia mayormente con el consumo de tabaco. Así mismo, se han asignado a los inspectores de saneamiento ambiental y de protección de alimentos , como a los miembros de la Comisión Nacional para el Control de Tabaco en Panamá, un total de 291 cámaras fotográficas con la finalidad de que se levante evidencia documental de los hallazgos encontrados en las inspecciones y pueda ser utilizada en el proceso de aplicación de las sanciones correspondientes. Se esta en la fase de implementación del Programa: “Disposición Adecuada de Colillas de Tabaco”, por medio de la Comisión Nacional de Control de Tabaco en Panamá, que ha estado retrasada por gestiones administrativas. Este programa se está coordinando con 11 municipalidades del país y se encuentra en la fase de instalación de dispositivos para la eliminación de colillas de tabaco en las calles de los distritos seleccionados, que lleva el mensaje ilustrado "Panamá libre de contaminación". También se están colocando tinacos para reciclaje con tres mensajes claves: prohibido fumar, prohibido el uso de los SEAN y recicla y protege el ambiente. Estos dispositivos se están instalando en parques y espacios abiertos donde esta prohibido fumar en las 11 municipalidades que forman parte de este proyecto. Con este programa se crea una alianza interinstitucional, como parte del cuidado del ambiente y la salud de las personas, debido a que está orientado a disminuir la contaminación que conlleva el desecho de los filtros de tabaco (Colillas), uno de los principales contaminantes ambientales.

Philippines At the sub-national level, there is an increasing number of Local Government Units with local ordinances on 100% smoke free environments through continued technical assistance and advocacy campaigns. Efforts are being made to ensure that local ordinances are consistent with FCTC provisions. The implementation of the Red Orchid Award (ROA) continuously serves as an incentive for LGUs to pursue a 100% smoke free environment in their localities. In 2017, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte signed the Executive Order no. 26 or "Providing for the Establishment of Smoke-free Environments in Public and Enclosed Places." It provided a framework which encourages local government units to implement smoke-free policies. The order prohibits smoking within enclosed public places and public conveyances. Selling, distributing or purchasing tobacco products to and from minors is also deemed unlawful. Minors are not allowed to smoke, sell or buy cigarettes or any other tobacco products. The order also makes it unlawful for anyone to order a minor to use, light up, buy, sell, distribute, deliver, advertise or promote tobacco products, a practice which is very common especially in rural areas.

Russian Federation По результатам Мониторинга 2019 г. потребление табака в домах и квартирах (где по закону не действует запрет на потребление табака) разрешено только в 24% случаев, что почти в два раза меньше по сравнению с 2017 годом (46,8%). В личном автомобиле в 2019 г. курение было разрешено только у 19,5% россиян, против 42,7% в 2017г. Результаты свидетельствуют об эффективности информационно-коммуникационных и просветительских мер российской антитабачной политики. По данным Мониторинга 2019 г. очевидцами курения в кафе, ресторанах и барах были 8,75% россиян, против 14% в 2017 г.
