Smoke-free Zone Certification Program Guide
This Guide presents preparatory work necessary for launching a similar smoke-free zone certification program. Specifically, it presents a framework for understanding the status quo, the evidence behind selection of certification criteria, and principles underlying development of compliance verification methods. The Guide further details components of the certification process and the necessary tools, arrangements, and manpower. Throughout, the Guide presents the experience of Jordan as an example, and closes with highlighting lessons learnt from that experience.
The Guide also discusses activities necessary to publicize results, promote certified smoke-free institutions, and use the opportunity to create general awareness of the need for protection from exposure to secondhand smoke.
