Skin Penetration

It is a requirement under the Public Health Regulation 2012 that all premises undertaking skin penetration procedures must register with their local Council.

A Skin Penetration procedure can be defined as:
- Acupuncture
- Beauty Treatments (Hair Removal, Manicure & Pedicure Treatments)
- Body, Nose & Ear Piercing
- Cosmetic Enhancements
- Colonic Lavage
- Tattooing
- Blood Cholesterol and Glucose Measurements

Inspections of these premises will be carried out to ensure the health of the public is protected when receiving these treatments and that all relevant standards are being met.

If your business/premises in the Hay Shire undertakes any of these procedures, please contact Council to register.
