Prisons Bureau May 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Smoking/No Smoking Areas
Document Number: E6-7237
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-05-12
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons, Prisons Bureau
In this document, the Bureau of Prisons (Bureau) proposes to revise regulations pertaining to smoking/no smoking for inmates in Bureau facilities. The revised regulations indicate that smoking is generally prohibited in and on the grounds of Bureau institutions and offices, with the following two exceptions: Smoking is permitted as part of an authorized inmate religious activity; and, for Bureau staff and official visitors, smoking is permitted only in smoking areas designated by the Warden. This rule also clarifies that possession of smoking apparatus and tobacco in any form is prohibited for inmates, unless as part of an authorized inmate religious activity. Smoking is defined as inhaling the smoke of any substance through the use of smoking apparatus including, but not limited to, cigars, cigarettes, or pipes. We intend this amendment to promote a clean air environment and to protect the health and safety of staff and inmates.
