The government’s crackdown on unregulated cosmetic procedures will be discussed at The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s (CIEH) Beauty Conference on Tuesday 18 October.
The programme for the online conference will explore the government’s intention to introduce a licensing regime for non-surgical cosmetic procedures and the expected improvements from such a move.
Working with public health partners, CIEH drafted and supported this key amendment to the Health and Care Bill, aimed at making the cosmetics industry safer in England, and worked closely with peers from across the political spectrum to ensure it received cross-party support in the House of Lords.
Other topics to be covered at the half-day conference will also explore emerging beauty procedures and treatments as well as infection control procedures. Latest guidance in nail bars will also be discussed.
Caroline Larissey, Director of Quality and Standards, National Hair and Beauty Federation will chair the day, with confirmed speakers including Andrew Rankin, Chair, Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners and Dr Godfrey Town, RPA2000 Certificated Laser Protection Adviser.
Ross Matthewman, CIEH Head of Policy and Campaigns said:
“It is an important time for the beauty sector with new regulations now imminent and updates on guidance due. The half day Beauty Conference will provide all the key updates for those working in it and involved in regulating it.”
