New amendment on Law on the protection of non-smokers is entering into force. At first, amendment allowed total ban on smoking in shopping malls, parliamentarians, however, disagreed with it. Smoking in malls thus do not stops, but it will be allowed only in areas separate by construction. The legal standard also brings a new definition of mass caterers. According to amendment is it each device, which not only produces and prepares foods, but the food is also brought into it. So, rules to protect non-smokers are also related to the confectioneries. The amendment introduced also stricter penalties. For violations of the law will be public health authorities able to impose a fine of 500 to 15.000 euros.
