Smoking Ban in Public Indoor Areas

After August, 2007, no smoking is permitted in public indoor areas, unless a smoking
device such as a smokers' room or smokers' booth has been installed, or the area is
used by one person at a time. Food and beverage must not be served or brought into
the smokers' room or booth. Smoking in bars and cafes with an alcohol license is
allowed only if the area occupied by the premises is less than 40 square meters.
Food as such must not be served.

Whether smoking is allowed in hotel rooms used for sleeping depends on the hotel
management. Smoking is not allowed in taxis or in public means of transportation.

Nearly a quarter of people in this country of 5.4 million is exposed to a passive smoking,
according to the National Board of Health. The board said a second-hand smoking was responsible
for the deaths of many people in Denmark and the hospitalization of more than 1,000 each year.

Employees or restaurants that violate the ban can be fined. First time offenders face the
fine of 2,000 kroner ($367). The second time, the penalty is 5,000 kroner ($913), 10,000
kroner ($1,830) the third time.
