Penalties

Sales Restrictions

Fine, Warning
Analysis

In schools, principals can reprimand, warn, and/or “take action” against teachers, education workers, and students who violate the ban on sales in schools. In addition, principals are given the authority to impose sanctions on teachers, education workers, and other parties; however, the sanctions that may be imposed are not specified.

For other locations designated as “smoke free zones” or areas, and thus where the sale of tobacco products is prohibited, any person who knowingly violates the smoke free zone is subject to a fine of up to 50,000,000 rupiah under Art. 199 of the Health Act.
