A new provision prohibiting vaping in certain workplaces is being added to the internal regulations of companies in France with more than 20 employees. Specifically, the use of electronic cigarettes (vaping) in premises with workstations, closed and covered and used for collective use, is prohibited from October 1, 2017. Although it will be prohibited to vaporize in common areas, it is not banned in individual offices. The employer must put in place signage on the prohibition of vaping. Failure to do so may result in imposition of a penalty. The act of smoking electronic cigarettes in the workplace in violation of the prohibition may also be subject to a fine.
