Smokefree legislation came into effect in Malta on 5 April 2004. It was phased in over a year and by 5 October 2005 smoking was prohibited in any enclosed private or public premises which is open to the public, including workplaces. However, designated smoking rooms (DSRs) are allowed in bars, restaurants and workplaces. Bars and restaurants with an area of >60m2 have to become smokefree or have a DSR. The DSR should be separate and fully enclosed, and not require non-smokers to pass through it.
Legislation – The Tobacco (Smoking Control) Act (CAP. 315) Smoking in Premises Open to the Public Regulations, 2004 (Maltese and English)
