Smokefree legislation/initiatives

On 1 January 2008 Portugal adopted a ban similar to that in Spain. Smoking is banned in all government buildings without exception, workplaces, rented accommodation, reception areas, health and medical facilities, retirement homes, orphanages, all education and sport facilities, museums, libraries, theatres, food and beverage establishments, airports, bus and train stations, covered car parks and ATM vestibules. Smoking areas can be created in any units or facilities that treat people for psychological problems. Prisons also have the option to create separate accommodation for smokers. Smoking areas can be designated provided they do not take up more than 30% of the total area or up to 40% of the total area, if the smoking area is completely separate for indoor public places larger than 100 m². Any building measuring less than 100m² can choose to allow smoking. If so, signs must be posted prior to entry and inside there must be walls or separations and ventilation units. Hotels can allocate smoking floors and rooms (up to 40% of the total area).
