Tanning salons

Rules tanning salonFebruary 11, 2013
Warning! Tanning salons are now governed by the same rules as tobacco outlets. From now on, a sole proprietorship defined as a tanning salon will be forced to register with the Enterprise registrar, even if the name of the enterprise includes the first and last names of the person who operates it, all in accordance with subsection 2(2) of the Act respecting the legal publicity of enterprises. As fully explained on the Enterprise registrar website:

The provision of artificial tanning services is an activity that must be declared in the enterprise register within 30 days after the tanning salon begins operations. The discontinuance of that activity must also be declared in the same register within 30 days after its occurrence.

A tanning salon operator who fails to declare that information in accordance with the first paragraph is guilty of an offence and liable to a fine of not less than $ 400 and not more than $ 4,000 in the case of a natural person, and not less than $ 600 and not more than $ 6,000 in other cases.

Nevertheless, private health facilities or specialized medical centres where physicians use UV equipment are not subject to this Act.
