Beauty Therapy, Tattooing, and Skin Piercing Bylaw opens for consultation

Add to favourites

Stratford District Council’s Statement of Proposal for the Draft Beauty Therapy, Tattooing and Skin Piercing Bylaw has been released for consultation today.

The draft bylaw and code of practice shows that within beauty therapy, tattooing and skin piercing there are a range of services delivered with different levels of risk to the customer. It provides minimum standards which reflect each of these commercial services based on their level of risk.

It is proposed those with a lower risk providing services such as facials, tinting and massage will have minimum standards to follow. Higher risk services such as tattooing will be required to follow the same standards, but will also need to obtain a Health and Hygiene licence from the Council before operating in the district. Council will monitor these on a complaints basis.

We want to know what you think of the proposed Beauty Therapy, Tattooing and Skin Piercing Bylaw, and accompanying Code of Practice. Submission forms and copies of the Statement of Proposal are available from Council’s Service Centre, and Council’s website below.

Consultation closes 4.30pm Friday 27 October 2017.
