Clean Indoor Air Act Exception Approvals
Philadelphia County

Pennsylvania's Clean Indoor Air Act (CIAA) does not apply to the City of Philadelphia. The City of Philadelphia enacted its own Clean Indoor Air Ordinance, which became effective on September 14, 2006. The Philadelphia Ordinance is not pre-empted by the state CIAA and is the law which governs smoking in public places within the Philadelphia city limits.
