In order to comply with FCTC Article 8 (Protection from Exposure to Tobacco Smoke), Parties to the FCTC are under legal obligation to enact smoke-free laws that effectively protect all persons from second-hand smoke. The Article 8 guidelines, based on decades of scientific evidence, clearly state that only 100% smoke-free environments provide adequate protection from exposure to second-hand smoke. Partial smoking bans, designated smoking rooms, or protection of only certain populations (e.g. women and children), are ineffective. Within ASEAN, only Brunei, Singapore, and Thailand have comprehensive laws in place that create effective, population-wide healthy zones.
