The following must be smokefree compliant:

  • premises the public have access to (eg. pubs, clubs, restaurants, cafes, community facilities, etc)
  • every workplace where more than one person works, or where members of the public may go to seek or receive goods or services
  • premises which are being used wholly or mainly for providing education, health or care services
  • public transport
  • work vehicles that are used by more than one person (eg. vans, lorries and taxi's)


The following are exempt from the legislation:

  • private residential spaces within adult hospices, prisons and long-stay adult residential care facilities
  • designated rooms in hotels, hostels and bed and breakfast accommodation are exempt since they are places where people live even though they are not private homes
