Smoking in Public Places Law – RCW 70.160 ensures that all public places and places of employment are smoke free. Owners and persons in charge are responsible for making sure that their clients comply with the law. Owners must post “No Smoking Signs” on all entrances to premise. Owners must also ensure no patrons are smoking indoors or within 25 feet of any door, window, or exit.
Variance applications to rebut the 25 foot rule are available. Please see all the forms below for complete details, requirements, and procedures. Please note that until a Variance Application has been granted, you must comply with every aspect of the law as written.
