Public premises such as shops, pubs and restaurants must now display no-smoking signage
New regulations have come in across the UK banning smoking in most enclosed public places. There will be a reuirement for most public premises, such as pubs, hotels, restaurants, and shops etc, to display signage containing a no-smoking symbol and the words No Smoking. The signs must be displayed at each public entrance in a conspicuous place for both staff and visitors entering the building. For more detailed guidance on the right signage you need, download our signage guidance leaflet here.
