Duterte signs EO on nat’l smoking ban

by

President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday signed the executive order (EO) prohibiting smoking in all public spaces.

Under the EO No. 26, buildings should provide a designated smoking area (DSA) where smoking is allowed. But in centers of youth activity such as schools, youth hostels, and recreational facilities for minors, smoking is completely prohibited.

The EO also rules that DSAs should be an open space or a separate area with proper ventilation.

For buildings that would designate DSAs not located in open spaces, a non-smoking buffer zone should also be provided. The buffer zone must be between the door of the smoking area and the rest of the building. Each building can only have one DSA.

Minors cannot step foot on the buffer zone.

Smoking is also prohibited in elevators and stairwells, fire hazardous places, premises of public and private hospitals and medical, dental, and optical clinics, and food preparation areas.
