Smoke-free environment

ACT Health is a smoke-free environment in accordance with ACT Government regulations.

These regulations protect our community from the known and potential harms associated with smoking products, including tobacco and electronic cigarettes.

Electronic cigarettes include e-cigars, e-pipes, vape pens, hookah pens, and e-hookahs. They are now regulated under the same conditions as tobacco.

Smoking tobacco or electronic cigarettes is banned in various public places across the ACT, including:

  • public transport waiting areas
  • outdoor eating and drinking areas
  • shopping centres
  • restaurants
