Our smokefree work

Toi Te Ora - Public Health Service aims to reduce the impact and incidence of tobacco related harm. 

Designated Smokefree Officers hope to achieve this by:

  • Carrying out Controlled Purchase Operations (CPOs) to identify retailers selling tobacco products to underage person/s

  • Inspecting licensed premises and workplaces to check for Smokefree compliance

  • Assisting organisations and individuals with issues around the Smokefree Environments Act 1990


Health Improvement Advisors achieve this through supporting organisations to develop smokefree policies:
