Dear clients and friends:
Recently, the Amendment to the Regulations of the General Law for Tobacco Control came into effect.
This amendment has a direct impact on the commercial operations of restaurants and bars, since it requires establishments that have designated smoking-only areas to ensure that such areas comply with the following specifications:
- Be totally separate from so-called 100 percent smoke-free spaces;
- Be located only in open air spaces, and never in an enclosed one;
- That no food and beverage consumption service is provided, and no recreational activities are carried out therein; and
- That they do not exceed 10% of the area of an establishment, solely considering the area destined to the provision of the service.
Interested parties can file a constitutional claim (amparo proceeding) against this new regulation and request a stay in order to be able to continue operating normally.
