JCTA Standards for Tanning Facilities

The JCTA believes that reducing risk for any type of equipment whether it be a sunbed, a car or ATV is about who controls the equipment. JCTA Member salons follow these standards to protect their clients:

  1. Follow all government regulations
  2. Skin Type every client correctly using the JCTA Skin Typing Form
  3. Banning the Use of equipment for a Skin Type 1 person – defined by Dr. Fitzpatrick as “always burn, never tan”.
  4. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to UV tan without a prescription or follow government regulations for teen tanning where regulations exist.
  5. Every staff that controls the equipment is trained and industry certified
  6. Keep complete client records
  7. No use of self-serve (client controlled/coin-op/swipe card) equipment. Only a trained and industry certified operator may set the time.
  8. Every client must wear protective eyewear
  9. JCTA warning sign of the risk of UV Light will be a placed in every UV Tanning Room and one in the front lobby.
