Appearance Industries Bylaw adopted

Published on 11 March 2022


We adopted a new bylaw for appearance industries at the Council meeting on 9 March.

This new bylaw covers a range of treatments carried out at beauty salons, cosmetic clinics, spas, shops, or by mobile and/or home-operators.  

It will help to manage and reduce health and hygiene risks by regulating certain procedures that risk piercing, cutting or burning a person’s skin, or involve risks from infection.   

The bylaw comes into effect on 1 July 2022, and we’ll be supporting operators to register and obtain their certificate of compliance by 1 July 2023.
