Smoking regulations

Smoking in public places

Environmental Services enforce the provisions of the Prohibition of Smoking in Certain Premises (Scotland) Regulations 2006.

Scotland as a nation, has become compliant with the provisions of these Regulations, which came in to force back in March 2006. However there are still individual breaches. Failure to comply with the law is a criminal offence.

Individuals can be issued a fixed penalty fine of £50 for smoking in a non smoking premises. The manager or person in control of any no smoking premises (including works vehicles) can be issued with a fixed penalty of £200, for either – allowing others to smoke in no smoking premises which they have control of or failing to display the appropriate warning notices in no smoking premises (including works vehicles).

For advice on the smoking ban or to report a concern please contact Environmental Services.
