Change to no-smoking signs regulations

The duty to display no-smoking signs in smoke-free premises and vehicles in England is being made simpler. Since 1 October, at least one legible no-smoking sign must still be displayed but owners and managers are now free to decide the size, design and location of the signs.

No action is needed for anyone who is already complying with the current regulations. But the new smoke-free signs regulations, give owners and managers the freedom to move, change or remove multiple signs.

Supplementary guidance for businesses and local authority regulatory officers about the new rules has been issued:  Implementation of Smoke-free Legislation in England.
