Spotlight on the FCTC
April 2008, Brussels - This second issue of "Spotlight on the FCTC" highlights how the European Commission, European Parliament and EU Member States have met, or in some cases failed to meet, their obligations to tackle second-hand smoke, according to Article 8 of the convention.
Less than a third of the EU Member States have introduced fully comprehensive smokefree legislation, three years after the world’s first public health treaty on tobacco control – the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) – introduced the need for protecting employees from the dangerous effects of second-hand smoke.
The second issue of the Spotlight on the FCTC reveals how only nine of the 25 EU Member States that have signed and ratified the WHO treaty have so far introduced comprehensive smokefree legislation, leaving over half of Europe’s workforce exposed to second-hand smoke.spotlight on the framework convention on tobacco control (fctc) - issue 2 (451 Downloads) issue 2 - bulgarian (429 Downloads) issue 2 - czech (473 Downloads) issue 2 - hungarian (436 Downloads) issue 2 - latvian (669 Downloads) issue 2 - polish (486 Downloads) issue 2 - romanian (442 Downloads) issue 2 - slovakian (465 Downloads)
