Outdoor Smoking Area Compliance
Oregon's Indoor Clean Air Act (ICAA) protects nearly every Oregonian from the health risks of secondhand smoke. The ICAA, also known as the Smokefree Workplace Law, prohibits smoking in the workplace and within 10 feet of all entrances, exits, and accessibility ramps that lead to and from an entrance or exit, windows and air-intake vents.
Enclosed Area Enforcement Notice
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is suspending enforcement of the rules pertaining specifically to the newly revised "enclosed area."
The Oregon Health Authority, Public Health Division filed a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Hearing on the definition of "enclosed area" with the Oregon Secretary of State on June 15, 2017. Learn how to review and comment on the draft rule.
ICAA expansion started January 1, 2016
The ICAA now includes the use of "inhalant delivery systems," which are devices that can be used to deliver nicotine, cannabinoids and other substances in the form of a vapor or aerosol. These include e-cigarettes, vape pens, e-hookah and other devices.
