Cigarette smoke is a complex mixture of gases and particles that contain many carcinogenic and toxic compounds, which is the result of smoke in the room. One way to solve the problem of smoking in the room is the implementation of SFA regulation. This regulation is very important to reduce air pollution caused by cigarette smoke and reduce the harm of smoking and provide healthy air to the community. There are seven areas covered by SFA regulation. Therefore it is very important to know about "What is the 7th public places containing air pollution caused by cigarette smoke so that the necessary implementing legislation SFA in Jember?". The aim of this study is to monitor the air quality in areas which are covered by SFA regulation in Jember, with details of the following specific objectives: Measuring the concentration of particulate matter (PM2.5) in places which are covered by SFA regulation, as well as proving their smoking activities affect the poor indoor air quality. This study is a descriptive cross-sectional study design using regional monitoring and observation. The study population is SFA that located in Jember. The total sample is 100 public places. Samples were selected purposively with the criteria area frequented by the general public, is a place whose existence to the characteristics of a city (icon). The air quality is measured by PM2.5 monitoring will be done in the building for at least 1 hour with the first 15 minutes of the procedure outside the building, 30 minutes in the final 15 minutes of the building and back outside the building. The results showed that there were 56% of the 100 public places that have air quality above the threshold the WHO standard is 25 ppm. Public areas in question consists of; hotel, office, modern markets, traditional markets, health centers, restaurants, terminals, hospitals, places of worship, educational facilities, entertainment venues, and other public places. From an average of PM 2.5 measurement result, traditional markets and entertainment venues occupy first and second place for air quality above the threshold the WHO standard (25 ppm), which amounted to 69.2 ppm and 60.6 ppm. While the lower level of education facilities has cleaner air quality according to the WHO standard is 18.4 ppm. From this study it can be concluded that most of the area public places in Jember have poor indoor air quality that is above the standard threshold of WHO. This is due to the policy of SFA in Jember. Efforts are required to advocate for SFA regulation in Jember in order to protect the publics right of non smokers to breathe clean and healthy air at the public facility.
