Clean Indoor Air - Smoking/Adolescent Tobacco Control
The counties responsible for enforcement of ATUPA will be expected to:
1. establish and maintain an up-to-date list of licensed and registered tobacco retailers and vendors in addition to locations of cigarette vending machines within their jurisdiction;
2. complete at least one compliance check at all retail tobacco vendors in the enforcement officers jurisdiction during the 12 month period;
3. identify and report unlicensed vendors to the Center for Environmental Health of the New York State Health Department. The Center will then communicate this information to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance which is responsible for the licensing of tobacco vendors in the State;
4. implement enforcement actions for vendors and owners of vending machines who fail compliance checks.
