Smokefree legislation (The Health Act 2006) came into force in England on 1 July 2007. Virtually all enclosed public places and workplaces will be required to be smokefree by law, and this includes vans and vehicles used for business.
A Smokefree England will ensure a healthier environment, so everyone can socialise, relax, travel, shop and work free from secondhand smoke.
Environmental Health Officers from Dudley Council are responsible for enforcing the legislation. We are working alongside Dudley Primary Care Trust to offer advice and practical support for employers and businesses.
