The Ofcom Broadcasting Code sets out the rules for broadcasters regarding smoking in programmes. Within the framework of the code it is the responsibility of each broadcaster to make judgments about what individual programmes should contain and at what time they are broadcast. Enforcement of the code is a matter for Ofcom, which operates independently of Government.
