Smokefree legislation/initiatives

Current legislation prohibits smoking during all indoor meetings and conferences, in all hospitals, schools, cultural and sports premises, and on all forms of public transport. Smoking is also prohibited in all restaurants during main meals, with the exception of restaurants that have designated rooms for smokers.

In February 2009 the Public Health Authority (UVZ) draft amendment to the law on protection of non-smokers was passed by Parliament. Under the bill, restaurants must assign at least 50 percent of their floor area for non-smokers and separate them from smokers by a wall. Smoking will still be permitted in caféas and bars. The bill has not yet been signed by the President. Tobacco control advocates had hoped for a comprehensive smoking ban (www.medindia.net/news/Partial-Smoking-Ban-To-Be-Made-Law-In-Slovakia-47676-1.htm).
