Licensing Of Tattoo And Piercing Outlets

EDM number 1838 in 2007-08, proposed by Lindsay Hoyle on 19/06/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Health education and preventive medicine and Service industries.

That this House calls on the Government to review current legislation surrounding the application for, and gaining of, a licence to operate a tattoo and piercing outlet; notes with concern that the current legislation monitors outlets only when in practice and offers no safeguards surrounding those who apply for the licences; notes that currently individuals with no prior training or experience can gain licences to operate an outlet; futher notes with concern that there is no external monitoring body for the industry such as a trade association; and calls on the Government to recognise the need for a regulatory body specifically for the industry to undertake stringent training programmes and ensure minimum health and safety standards are achieved across the board.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
