Are you prepared for the new smoking laws?

Liquor

From 1 August 2017, smoking will be banned in all commercial outdoor dining areas in Victoria.

The ban will cover all outdoor dining areas at restaurants, cafes, take-away shops and licenced premises.

Smoking will also be banned in an outdoor drinking area if any part of that area is within four metres of an outdoor dining area, unless separated by a wall of at least 2.1 metres high.

If the separation requirement is not met, smoking will be banned. This law applies to the same venue as well as to neighbouring venues.

Failure to comply with these new laws can result in penalties for both the venue and the individual.

Community support for smoke-free outdoor dining continues to rise, with the latest Cancer Council Victoria research showing 73 per cent of Victorians support the ban.

Preparation for the laws is important with a range of information available on the Department of Health and Human Services website.

There is also a great range of signage and fact sheets available for display at your venue.

Please note: this is an initiative and directive of the Department of Health and Human Services. For further information or assistance, please contact them as follows:
