Laser Licensing in Nottinghamshire
All Nottinghamshire councils, operate a "licence" scheme for all premises (using lasers) not falling within the scope of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010.
This applies to establishments such as salons, clinics and tattoo studios using class 3B/4 lasers and IPLs.
The requirements to obtain a licence (under the Nottinghamshire County Council Act 1985) can vary wildly but will usually include, provision of Core of Knowledge (laser safety) Training and appointment of a Laser Protection Adviser (LPA).
