Indoor Clean Air Act (ICAA)
Oregon's ICAA protects nearly all Oregonians from the harms of secondhand smoke. The ICAA creates smoke-free public places and places of employment with the intent of protecting the health of employees and the public. Tobacco remains the main cause of preventable death and disease in the United States, including in Oregon. For more information, click here.
What is an ICAA Violation?
Anyone smoking or vaping tobacco or marijuana, or carrying a lighted smoking instrument inside of a business in an ICAA violation. This includes work vehicles that are not operated exclusively by one employee, as well as hotels and motels.
Anyone smoking or vaping tobacco or marijuana or carrying a lighted smoking instrument within 10 feet of a door, a window that opens, or the air intake vent of a business is in violation of the ICAA.
Any ash receptacles located inside a business or within 10 feet of a door, a window that opens, or the air intake vent of a business is a violation of the ICAA.
Outdoor tables within 10 feet of a door must be labeled as non-smoking and non-vaping. The presence of an unlawful enclosed smoking area is also a violation. For more information and examples, click here.

Businesses and the ICAA
Marion County TPEP partners with public and private organizations and businesses to provide technical assistance in developing and implementing smoke-free policies for workplaces, multi-unit housing, city parks, one-time and ongoing outdoor events, and other public areas.
TPEP can also assist in clarifying or enhancing an existing policy. In many cases, TPEP can offer signage and/or communication materials to assist with policy implementation and enforcement.

What is an enclosed area?
Oregon's Indoor Clean Air Act (ICAA) requires workplaces and public places to be smoke, vapor, and aerosol free. This includes enclosed areas that are open to the public.
