Cosmetic Laser and IPL Treatments:
Regulation by the Local Authority

Businesses in the UK offering laser/IPL treatments must comply with national safety legislation. This includes;


Risk assessment by a competent person.
Safety information and training for all staff
Policy and procedures (if there are 5 staff or more)


For small and medium businesses, the health and safety regulator will almost certainly be the local council. In some areas of the country (e.g. London), in addition to the legal safety requirements, the local council may also use by-laws to effectively licence the use of laser and IPL equipment. In these cases, it can be illegal to carry out treatments without a licence.
