Taiwan adopted a new Tobacco Hazard Prevention and Control Act

Taiwan, also known as Formosa is an island located in southwest of the main islands of Japan, but directly
west of the end of Japan's Ryukyu Islands. The island of Taiwan is 394 kilometers long and 144 kilometers wide
and consists of steep mountains covered by tropical and subtropical vegetation. Its rapid economic growth in
the decades after World War II has transformed it into an advanced economy status, which is known as the
Taiwan Miracle. Its technology industry plays a key role in the global economy. Taiwanese companies
manufacture a large proportion of the world's consumer electronics.

Most workplaces enforce smoking ban .

The government adopted a package of amendments to the Tobacco Hazards Prevention and Control Act
on July 11 to impose stricter anti-smoking regulations starting Jan.2009. The regulation prohibits
smoking in indoor workplaces that are occupied by more than three people, as well as in all public areas
within a workplace, such as stairwells and hallways, which are often used as the place of smoking.
Workplaces caught breaking the rule will be fined between NT$10,000(approx.US$300,Jap\30,000)
and NT$50,000, and individual violators will be subject to fines of NT$2,000 to NT$10,000.

Taiwan enforces indoor smoking ban.

Taiwan's health authorities dispatched inspector January to check on the newly amended Tobacco Hazards
Prevention Act that now bans indoor smoking in public facilities. Despite a prevention campaign
organized in recent weeks, several people received a warning for smoking in restaurants, office buildings,
taxis and around public establishments such as hospitals and airports, and some business owners received
the first fines.  Taipei City Director reminded the public that smoking is now prohibited on public trans-
portation and in the indoor areas of most public establishments, including roofed transport stations,
internet cafes and comic book stores.

Taiwan became the 17th country in the world to ban smoking indoors at public facilities by law, prohibiting
smoking in theatres, restaurants, office buildings and public establishments, in the first step toward a
government goal to make the country smoke-free. Health authorities estimate that half a million establish-
ments could be affected by the new law, which became effective after its 18-month grace period expired.
The amended law passed the legislature in June 2007.

So far, the current law does not extend to those who smoke on their balconies, rooftops or courtyards of
apartment complexes. Some establishments such as hotels, restaurants, shopping malls and nursing
homes for the elderly are allowed to have special smoking areas. However, these establishments are likely
to prohibit smoking altogether in light of the strict requirements for setting up smoking rooms. Under
the new regulation, the air-flow standards for these smoking rooms are similar to the requirements for
quarantine wards for highly contagious patients, which means expensive construction with costs of at l
east NT$400,000 (US$12,000) per unit.

Airports have closed their smoking rooms, and local air carriers are barred from selling cigarettes to
passengers during flights under the new law. In a bid to discourage violations of the ban, health authorities
are offering rewards to people who report such violations. However, in order to receive the reward, the
informant must provide material evidence, such as photos of individuals caught in the act, so that the
authorities can levy a fine. Under the law, the last public places in which smoking is allowed indoors are
nightclubs or bars that do not admit patrons under the age of 18 after 9pm.
