On behalf of the Federal Provincial Territorial Radiation Protection Committee (FPTRPC) Working Group on Tanning Equipment, Health Canada is seeking stakeholder feedback on the Committee's draft document "Guidelines for Tanning Equipment Owners, Operators, and Users". This document is intended to replace the current document of the same name published in 2014. The document is intended to provide general information to owners and users of tanning equipment, especially for those who provide such services in a commercial environment, as well as to identify recommended best practices to reduce cancer and public health risks. The document is not intended to provide guidance for compliance with federal or provincial legislative requirements.
