The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) and Institute of Licensing (IoL) released two reports on the 2nd September regarding the regulation of cosmetic treatments. The first report brings together information on the prevalence, public awareness and existing regulation of these treatments across the UK while their second report, The ugly side of beauty: improving the safety of cosmetic treatments in England, reveals the findings of their survey of regulators in England, who are responsible for keeping the public safe, and the serious gaps they see in the protections. It sets out recommendations for changes needed to ensure that these treatments operate in the safest way possible and so that regulators have adequate enforcement powers to protect public health.
