To answer, yes there is. Usually it is a set date from when the legislation was confirmed.

Take the smoking ban in Toronto for example with restaurants. They had x-number of months to (at first) revamp their air filtration and HVAC systems so that they could have a designated "smoking room" and at a later point, the full ban completely.
