Danish smoking rules are tightened following an amendment of the Danish Anti-Smoking Act with effect ‎from 15 August 2012.‎
The Danish Parliament recently passed a Bill to amend the Anti-Smoking Act from 2007, tightening the ‎rules for smoking in public spaces. Employers will still be allowed to provide employees with smoking ‎rooms and cubicles but, under the new Act, signs must be put up to show that those are designated ‎smoking areas. The signs must also say that the air around smoking rooms and cubicles may be ‎hazardous to health.‎ 
The Anti-Smoking Act used to allow employees to smoke in single-person offices. After the amendment ‎takes effect, however, this will no longer be allowed. In future, smoking will only be allowed in cranes, ‎company cars and other commercial vehicles used by a single person.‎
