Public Health Risk Activities

In accordance with the Public Health Act 1997, the Council has a responsibility to ensure that there are adequate systems in place to prevent the risk of cross contamination in premises used for skin penetration practices such as acupuncture, ear/body piercing, and tattoos.

Licensing and Registration

Any person performing skin penetration practices must have a licence to conduct a Public Health Risk Activity and the premises where a Public Health Risk Activity is to be conducted must be registered.

The Council carry out annual inspections to assess the operation of those premises and the carrying out of those activities for compliance with the relevant guidelines.
