Inspections make sunbeds safer

Cheshire East Council’s regulatory services and health team inspects the Borough’s sunbed businesses to ensure that they comply with European safety standards, which limit the amount of ultraviolet radiation that can be emitted to 0.3 Watts per square metre.

Council officers also carry out test purchasing exercises to ensure that tanning salons comply with the Sunbed (Regulations) Act 2010, which lays down that users must be aged 18 or over.

Two rounds of inspections were carried out between June and December 2014. In the first round, only 36 per cent of sunbeds were found to be complying with European standards. In the second round, 78 out of 90 sunbeds (87 per cent) passed the tests.

The tables below show the compliance status of Cheshire East’s sunbed businesses at 21st September 2015.
