Australia and Norway both ban smoking in public places. Marketing of tobacco products is also all but prohibited, and both countries have introduced neutral packaging requirements for tobacco products. Australia first introduced limits in 2012 with Norway following suit in 2018.
Both countries have also seen substantial reductions in daily smoking rates over the last two decades. Between 2001 and 2018, the percentage of daily smokers in Australia has decreased from 22 percent to 14 percent, while in Norway the prevalence of smoking has dropped from 30 percent to 12 percent over the same period.
