Smoking ban and electric vaping

Smoking ban and electric vaping

Is electric smoking a way to circumvent the smoking ban? No, it does not work like that. Although the vapor of e-cigarettes in itself will not be harmful to the environment, it is often still legally equated. On this page you can read more about the smoking ban and electric fumes.

Note: This information about the smoking ban and electric fumes is not intended as a recommendation for smoking with e-cigarettes.

Does a smoking ban apply to electric fumes everywhere?

When you take the rule that you should not smoke where you should not smoke, you are usually safe, but not always. Here is a list of situations where it is allowed and not allowed. Keep in mind that these rules can change quickly. Check if in doubt before you take out the e-cigarette.

Here you can smoke electric:

  • Public area
  • Terraces
  • Perrons at designated locations
  • Some hotels
  • Some offices
  • Most smoking areas

Where can you smoke?

If you are not sure, it is best to simply ask someone if it is allowed. Preferably also to someone who has something to say about it! At the moment vapors are often equated with smoking, we leave in the middle whether this is justified. In addition, an e-cigarette with a battery, this brings with it other risks.
