Australia 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. 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.

Bulgaria 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. Answer not provided On June 1st 2012 g. are adopted changes in the Health Act which regulates total ban of smoking for indoor and open public places. The prohibition of smoking has been expanded to include premises with separate work places adjacent area and sidewalks of nurseries kindergartens schools student dormitories and places where social services are provided for children playgrounds places where events for children and pupils are organized sports facilities summer cinemas and theatres - during sports and cultural events. The aim of the current ban on smoking in indoor and some open public places is to protect public health. This prohibition on the one hand protect the health of non-smokers who are exposed to tobacco smoke in indoor and some open public places on the other hand protects smokers from excessive use of tobacco and tobacco products.

Ecuador ara dar cumplimiento a lo dispuesto en el Artículo 11 de la LORCT, desde año 2015, la Agencia de Regulación, Control y Vigilancia Sanitaria (ARCSA), realiza monitoreos constantes y aleatorios de los espacios que deben cumplir con el mandato de ser libres de humo de tabaco. El resultado de estos monitoreos se envían de manera semestral al Ministerio de Salud Pública. Adicionalmente, desde el año 2017, se ha implementado lineamientos adicionales para que cualquier institución pública o privada, pueda declararse como establecimiento 100% libre de humo (independientemente de lo reglamentado por la ley). Para esto, los establecimientos deben cumplir ciertos requisitos que el Ministerio de Salud Pública monitoreará para que puedan ser reconocidos como establecimientos 100% libres de humos. Los reportes de los establecimientos reconocidos se envían de manera semestral desde las diferentes coordinaciones zonales de salud a nivel nacional hacia el nivel central. Posteriormente se realizan seguimientos para corroborar que las instituciones sigan cumpliendo los lineamientos. El Ministerio de Salud hasta el año 2014 se encargaba de los monitoreos con los comisarios de salud, para controlar el cumplimiento de lo dispuesto en la LORCT. Se elaboraban actas de monitoreo para llevar un registro de los establecimientos visitados y con evidencias se reportaban los casos que debían sancionarse.

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. Entrée en vigueur de la nouvelle loi antitabac, (loi modifiée du 11août 2006), en janvier 2014, et étandant la liste des lieux ou il est interdit de fumer. http://www.sante.public.lu/fr/prevention/modes/tabac/interdiction-fumer/index.html Depuis le 01.01.2014 la nouvelle législation antitabac ( loi du 18 juillet 2013 modifiant la loi du 11 août 2006) est en vigueur : elle étend l’interdiction de fumer à tous les débits de boissons aux établissements de sports et de loisirs aux galeries marchandes et commerciales aux établissements d’hébergement. Selon le premier bilan de la loi du 18 juillet 2013 modifiant la loi du 11 août 2006 relative à la lutte antitabac la législation concernant la protection contre lexposition à la fumée de tabac est globalement respectée.

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 y a la Comisión Nacional para el Control de Tabaco en Panamá, 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 tiene proyectada la implementación del Programa: “Disposición Adecuada de Colillas de Tabaco”, por medio de la Comisión Nacional de Control de Tabaco en Panamá, que ha estado retrasado por gestiones administrativas. Este programa se está coordinando con 11 municipalidades del país y trata de la instalación de dispositivos de colillas de tabaco en las calles de los distritos seleccionados. También se estarán colocando tinacos con dos mensajes claves el de prohibido fumar y el de recicla y protege el ambiente. Los mismos serán colocados en los diferentes parques de estos municipios y áreas abiertas que no incumplan la disposición de No fumar. Este programa crea una alianza interinstitucional, como parte del cuidado del ambiente y la salud de las personas, y está orientado a disminuir la contaminación que conlleva el desecho de los filtros de tabaco (Colillas), uno de los principales contaminantes ambientales. 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.

Se han realizado dos rondas de capacitación teórico - práctica en las 15 regiones de salud que incluyen a inspectores de saneamiento ambienta y de protección de alimentos para el uso del aparato. Se cuenta con una programación de inspecciones para el desarrollo de operativos acompañados de la medición de partículas a fin de valorar en forma 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. Adicionalmente, se han adquirido 275 computadores portátiles que se entregaron a los inspectores con una base de datos instalada para el registro de los resultados de las inspecciones, considerando todas las disposiciones que en materia de control de tabaco se aplican en el país. Así mismo, se han asignado a los inspectores de saneamiento ambiental y de protección de alimentos y a la Comisión Nacional para el Estudio del Tabaquismo en Panamá 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 tiene proyectado la implementación del Programa: “Disposición Adecuada de Colillas de Tabaco”, por medio de la Comisión Nacional para el Estudio del Tabaquismo en Panamá, que será lanzado a nivel nacional en el marco del Día nacional de No Fumar que se conmemora el 25 de Octubre de cada año. Este programa se está coordinando con 11 municipalidades del país y trata de la instalación de dispositivos de colillas de tabaco en las calles de los distritos seleccionados . También se estarán colocando tinacos con dos mensajes claves el de prohibido fumar y el de recicla y protege el ambiente. Los mismos serán colocados en los diferentes parques de estos municipios y áreas abiertas que no incumplan la disposición de No fumar. Este programa crea una alianza interinstitucional, como parte del cuidado del ambiente y la salud de las personas (CMCT), y está orientado a disminuir la contaminación que conlleva el desecho de los filtros de tabaco (Colillas), uno de los principales contaminantes ambientales. Recientemente hemos adquirido 16 unidades de SidePack para la medición de partículas PM 2.5. con la finalidad de mejorar la vigilancia y control de los ambientes 100% libres de humo de tabaco. A la fecha. se ha cumplido con la capacitación de los inspectores de las 14 regiones sanitarias del país en el uso del aparato y se ha elaborado un cronograma para el desarrollo de operativos acompañados de la medición de partículas a fin de valorar en forma 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. Adicionalmente. acabamos de culminar la recolección de data en 20 establecimientos de la ciudad de Panamá como parte del Estudio Comparativo: Exposición al humo de segunda mano en establecimientos de hospitalidad al aire libre: Evidencia de Panamá y Uruguay. en el mismo se utiliza el monitor de nicotina colocado durante 3 jornadas laborales en personal del establecimiento y la medición de partículas PM 2.5 con el Side Pack en los ambientes abiertos y cerrados del local. durante 30 minutos en cada área en una sola toma. que coincida con los días de colocación de los monitores de nicotina. Se aplicó una encuesta a gerentes y otra a los trabajadores. A la fecha el estudio está en fase de análisis. por lo cual no contamos con resultados que podamos compartir en este informe.

Philippines 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. At the sub-national level, there is an increasing number of Local Government Units with local ordinances on 100% smoke free environments. Efforts are being made to ensure that local ordinances are consistent with FCTC provisions. The implementation of the Red Orchid Award (ROA) served as an incentive for LGUs to pursue a 100% smoke free environment in their localities. Local ordinances consistent with the FCTC guidelines were made criteria for selection of the winning LGUs in the ROA. The DOH was able to identify LGUs with good practices on 100% smoke free environment through the ROA. As a result, a network of LGUs leading in the implementation of 100% smoke free environment was organized through the Smoke Free Cities Asean Network (SCAN).
