Tobacco Law Update

No Smoking Here
Cayman's Tobacco Law banning smoking in some public areas, are still on track.

Cayman’s new Tobacco Law will certainly not be abandoned although the commencement date for this legislation has been pushed back to 31 December 2009, the Minister of Health Mark Scotland confirmed.

“The amendment was approved in Cabinet earlier this week and will allow more time for finalising regulations and for putting the necessary administrative processes in place,” he explained.

The ministry hopes to present Cabinet with the final regulations within a few weeks, after which town hall-style stakeholder meetings will begin between late November and early December.
