Section 99 Medical use of sunbeds
197.This section allows the Scottish Ministers to make regulations in relation to sunbeds used for medical purposes. This future proofs the legislation against the possibility that operators may try to circumvent the provisions by offering ‘medical devices’, which produce tanning of the skin, rather than ‘sunbeds’. Subsection (2) sets out that the regulations may make provision regarding what is to be considered a sunbed or sunbed premises as well as the circumstances in which the provisions of this Part do and do not apply. Regulations will be made by affirmative procedure.
