APPG inquiry considers licensing around aesthetic treatments

On Wednesday 21st October, the APPG on Beauty, Aesthetics and Wellbeing held its fourth oral evidence session in its inquiry into non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

The Group is leading an important inquiry into non-surgical cosmetic procedures to investigate how standards for undertaking such treatments, and for their promotion, should be improved to support the beauty and aesthetics industry and protect public safety. You can read more about our inquiry here.

This evidence session considered the current state of the law surrounding such treatments, and consider whether the current legislative and regulatory regime is robust enough, how licensing requirements vary between devolved nations, the best practices that can be adopted and whether there should be a national standard on licensing which all local authorities should adopt.

The APPG heard from:

  • Sarah Clover, Kings Barristers
  • Charlotte Rose, Senior Environmental Health Officer at Wolverhampton Council
  • Tamara Sandoul, Policy Manager, Charted Institute for Environmental Health

The minutes of the session will be made available shortly.
