Bulgarian Government to Increase Checks for Public Smoking

The Bulgaria Ministry of Public Health has declared it would extend checks for lighting up in public venues in the evenings and during bulgariaholidays. According to the ministry, checks are initiated as people complain that cigarette smoking regulations in restaurants and other public venues are not followed in the evenings.
Under the regulations, which were implemented on December 19, 2010, business owners have to establish advanced ventilation systems, walls and closing doors in smoking sections designated in bars, restaurants and cafes. The regulations cover all smoking areas established within commercial, public and administrative venues, as well as airports and railroad and bus stations
