Smoking and Non-Smoking Places

In Guernsey it is illegal to smoke in most indoor places other than private homes (including restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, church halls, sports centres, shops, schools and all clubs) and anyone that sells tobacco products is required to be licensed by the Office for Health and Social Care.

Local legislation prevents smoking in shared workplaces, including lorries and vans.  Employers can provide outdoor smoking shelters for their staff and customers provided they comply with the new law but they do not have to. 

If you wish to make a complaint please contact the Office of Environmental Health and Pollution Regulation.

Smoking Shelters

 

There is no obligation to provide smoking shelters for employees or customers but such shelters may be provided as long as they are NOT structures:

In effect any smoking shelter must have at least half of its sides completely open.
