Written answers (Question to Health)

Officials from my Department recently completed an examination of the training requirements for sunbed businesses provided for in Section 14 of the Public Health (Sunbeds) Act 2014).  Following this examination, it has been decided not to commence Section 14.

It should be noted that HSE compliance investigations highlight whether staff have been properly trained with regard to compliance issues in the legislation.
