Implementation of smoke-free legislation at national level is one of the key measures to reduce and ultimately eliminate the passive exposure of general population to secondhand tobacco smoke. Even though most of the EU countries have already introduced smoke-free laws mainly regulating smoking at public places, these laws have different degree of comprehensiveness and the compliance with the legislation differs among European countries. In this presentation, we will present the results of the first wave of Eurest-Plus survey conducted in 2016 for six European countries (Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Spain). In particular, the prevalence of the observance of smoking in workplaces and hospitality venues (pubs/bars, restaurants, and discos) for each country will be shown as well as the respondents’ reports about smoking themselves in those venues. These results will be presented according to the level of national smoke-free legislation in force at the time of the survey.
