0.3 legislation

The Sunbeds (Regulation) Act 2010, came into force on the 8 April 2011 to help protect the most vulnerable by stopping under 18s from accessing sunbeds. Southern Sunbed Hire are fully supportive of this legislation and was already promoting the refusal of hire sunbeds to Under 18's before the legislation was introduced.

Any business that supplies a sunbed for hire to a consumer needs to ensure they supply adequate instructions on the safe use of such equipment. The instructions would need to detail how to safely use the equipment, harm that can be caused from excessive use, that under 18's should not use the equipment and also that t he equipment needs to be appropriately marked with warnings.

In addition to this Sunbed Hire operators must ensure compliance with The European Standard (The General Product Safety Regulations 2005. BS EN 60335-2-27: Particular requirements for appliances for skin exposure to ultraviolet and infrared radiation) in which safe limits for UV radiance are stated, specifies a limit of 0.3 W/m2.

Well what does this mean?
Well essentially the regulations state that the 0.3 W/m2 maximum irradiance limit for UV tanning equipment is based on the opinion of the EU's Scientific Committee on Consumer Products (SCCP), and as a comparison it represents the intensity of the midday sun in the summer in the Mediterranean. In other words the safe limit is intended to match sunbed output to the maximum that human Caucasians have biologically evolved to deal with.
