The Prohibition of Smoking in Certain Premises (Scotland) Regulations 2006

During 2005 comments were invited on proposals for regulations under powers contained in the Smoking, Health and Social Care (Scotland) Bill 2005. The Bill, which prohibits smoking in certain wholly or substantially enclosed public places, was passed by the Scottish Parliament on June 30, 2005, and received Royal Assent. It came into force on March 26, 2006.

The regulations take into account responses to the consultation and other considerations. They set out the detail and definitions of the premises to be prescribed as 'no-smoking' or exempt, signage requirements and the arrangements for fixed penalties.

A copy of the regulations, approved by the Scottish Parliament, can be viewed at the Prohibition of Smoking in Certain Premises (Scotland) Regulations 2006.
