New health and hygiene bylaw
Under-18s are no longer allowed to use sunbeds in Auckland.
The prohibition is part of a new health and hygiene bylaw that requires 1200 Auckland businesses from tattoo parlours to nail bars to be licensed and follow a code of practice.
That means minimum standards have been put in place from this month.
The bylaw requires all commer- cial services that might break, burn or pierce the skin to display a Health Protection Licence.
