A smoking ban in Portugal



Smoking Restriction in Lisbon

Lisbon Portela Airport, also known as Lisbon Airport, is located 7km north of the city of Lisbon. In Portuguese, it is
called Aeroporto de Lisboa.

From February 2008, Portugal introduced a smoking ban in enclosed spaces in public places and commercial
establishments. The Portuguese airport authority followed by announcing a full ban on smoking in areas of all airports
except at Lisbon, where there are designated smoking areas.

The total guest rooms of Sheraton Lisbona Hotel are 369. Of these, 60 rooms are designated as a smoking room ( 16.2% ). The Panorama Restaurant
has a bar, in which smoking is allowed. No wall is present between a restaurant and bar section.
Tivoli Oriente Hotel, Lisbon has a total room of 279. The number of smoking room is 40 (
14.3% ). A lobby bar on the second floor has a smoking section.
However, the non-smoking and smoking areas are in the same floor space. A hotel staff explained there is a good aspiration system, which remove

According to the data presented by the Tobacco Manufacturing Asocation, about the cigarette prices & tax,
the tax incidence is 80 % for Portugal and 78% for Spain, respectively. However, the price of a cigarette
appeared to be equal in both countries. Marlboro, for instance, costs 3.6 Euros in Lisbon, and 3.6 Euros
in Barcelona, which is the same. Duty-free shops are retailing outlets that do not apply local or national
taxes and duties. It is a bit of misnomer though because shoppers may still have to pay duties in their home
country on items purchased from the shops which are exempt from taxes. They are often found in the inter-
national zone of airports, sea ports or on board passenger ships. They are not as commonly available for
road or train travelers, although several border crossings between the United States and Canada have
duty-free shops for car travelers. These outlets were abolished for travel within the European Union in 1999,
but are retained for travelers whose destination is outside the EU. They also sell to intra-EU travelers but
with appropriate taxes.

A smoking ban at the larger public places in Portugal

In January 2008, Portugal new law prohibited smoking in public areas, including bars and restaurants. However,
the law allows owners of establishments such as bars, restaurants and clubs with less than 100sq m, the right to
choose whether they will allow smokers or not. If they choose to allow smokers, they must have ventilation systems
installed to eliminate the smoke. Most premises may ban smoking, as the costs of adapting the space with
ventilation systems is too high.

Ireland-based Ryanair is selling smokeless cigarettes on all the company’s flights. Ryanair says a survey showed many
passengers would like the option to smoke during flights. The air line company sells the air passengers a pack of
smokeless tobacco for 6 Euros. The company spokesman, S.McNamara believes the smokeless nicotine-delivery device
do not emit any toxins or chemicals to nearby passengers.
There are many hostile criticisms on the extra-charge enforced by the Ryanair. Recently, when the Iceland's volcanic ash
caused European disruption, Ryanair did not support their passengers. Italian civic aviation authority, in May 2010, said
to impose a fine on Ryanair 3 million Euros for failing stranded customers when their flights were canceled.

ポルトガル:中途半端な飲食店規制: 
世界に広がる喫煙規制の流れに沿って、ポルトガルで2008年1月に「禁煙法」が施行された。
規制内容は次のようになっている。
〔全面禁煙〕
 病院、学校、職場、スポーツ施設の建物内
 食品を取扱う店舗
 飛行機、バス、タクシー
 電車、駅(屋外エリアは除く)
 100sqm 以上の面積のあるすべてのレストラン、カフェ、バー 2018年よりすべての飲食店で全面禁煙とする
 船舶 (国内線、国際線)

飲食店は分離した喫煙スペースがあれば規制から除外されている。また,100 sqm以下のレストラン、パブ、バーでは店主は
喫煙、禁煙いずれかを選択出来る。スペインの規制と類似しているし、中途半端な喫煙規制である。飲食店では「きれいな空気」
を期待しない方がよいだろう。ホテル、劇場、空港内施設でも完全に分離した喫煙室を設けることが出来るが、コストの面で
敬遠されているようである。

ポルトガルの喫煙規制法は、条例施行第一日目に食品基準局のアントニオ・ヌーネス委員長がリスボン郊外のカジノで喫煙している
姿を地元紙に掲載され、「禁煙条例の責任者、条例執行初日に自ら違反」と大々的に報道されたため、禁煙条例の存在を一挙に
広めた。

喫煙規制法の目的は全国民をタバコ有害煙から守ることと、喫煙者に禁煙を考える切っ掛けを与え、喫煙人口を減少させることに
ある。隣国、スペインと同様に小規模飲食店を喫煙規制の対象から外したので不完全な規制措置となった。しかし、喫煙者の多い
環境で、国家として受動喫煙防止法案を採択、実行したことに大きな意義がある。規制面では2年先行したスペインではタバコ
規制法実施後、すでに160万人の人が禁煙に踏み切っている。ホルトガルでも同様の成果が期待されている。
資料引用 2008年1月2日、ロイター通信

検証:ポルトガルでは、2008年2月より受動喫煙防止法が施行されている。航空機内、鉄道、タクシーなどは全面禁煙となった。
空港は国際、国内空港をすでに喫煙室を設けているリスボン空港を除き、空港内での喫煙室設置を禁止した。飲食店では大体禁煙の
ところが多いが、喫煙を許した店舗もあり、喫煙場所と禁煙場所が同じ部屋で、ただ換気装置を設けることで良しとしている
ところも少なくない。宿泊したホテルのレストラン、バーではこうした不完全分煙の方式がとられていた。中途半端な喫煙規制
状況を今回の検証旅行で確認出来たと思う。



In April 2015, New law bans smoking in closed public space.

Portugal's government has approved amendments to the law on tobacco that foresee the prohibition of electronic
cigarettes containing nicotine and of smoking in all closed public spaces, according to a statement released after the
weekly cabinet meeting.

The government "approved a bill for the protection of citizens from the involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke
and for the reduction of demand relating to addiction, as well as for the cessation of its consumption and the
reinforcement of the information available to consumers.

The bill bans smoking in areas with service in all types of restaurants, cafes and bars, including in concert venues
and cinemas, casinos, bingo halls, games rooms and other spaces that host non-artistic shows. The minister of health,
Paulo Macedo, noted that the new bill comes eight years after the current tobacco law took effect.

Among changes to cigarette packaging are the replacement of text warnings with pictures aimed at dissuading people
from smoking, and the elimination of "subjective" descriptive words such as "light". Tobacco products with distinctive
aromas, such as menthol, are also to be banned. Until now smoking has been allowed in closed public spaces with
the appropriate air extraction systems, as specified under the existing law. A moratorium of five years is foreseen
for the application of the new law for establishments that have invested in these systems.

New smoking law set to come into force

A new law which clamps down even further on smoking is to come into force on 1 January 2018. Under the new law
e-cigs and other devices will be governed by the same laws as traditional tobacco, and smoking will be banned in
all places frequented by minors. The law further states that designated outdoors areas should be created for
smokers, and covered to protect against the elements.

The government "approved a bill for the protection of citizens from the involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke
and for the reduction of demand relating to addiction, as well as for the cessation of its consumption and the
reinforcement of the information available to consumers," the statement said.
The bill bans smoking in areas with service in all types of restaurants, cafes and bars, including in concert venues
and cinemas, casinos, bingo halls, games rooms and other spaces that host non-artistic shows.

The new packs will feature the product name in standard font on the front below a huge health warning.


Why do all cigarette boxes now have plain packaging? The aims of the laws are simple - to cut the number of people
taking up smoking by making it less appealing to children and young people. Tobacco products have already been
hidden under the counter, and now they are losing their colorful branding. According to Cancer Research, two-thirds
of smokers start before the age of 18 - the beginning of an addiction which will kill up to two in three long-term smokers.
The cigarette companies will be stripped of their branding, with boxes only displaying graphic images of smoking-related
illnesses. Two-thirds of smokers start before they are 18, according to Cancer Research. Several studies have shown
standard packs change attitudes and beliefs around smoking, by reducing its appeal and making health warnings more
prominent. Australia has had standardized packs since December 2012, and figures suggest smoking has declined
since then.
