Tanning Information

Sunbed use by Under 18s

The law came into force on 8 April 2011. It is illegal to allow anyone under 18 to use a sunbed. TSA's Code of Practice prohibits sunbed use by anyone under 18 years.

It is estimated that one-third of our lifetime exposure to UV occurs in the first 18 years of life. The delicate skin of children needs to be protected, as the melanin-producing cells do not act efficiently enough to cope with over-exposure and there is evidence which suggests that over-exposure and sunburn pose the biggest risk to skin damage.

Preventing sunburn and over-exposure in childhood is seen as a major factor in preventing skin damage in later life. On the other hand, studies have shown that UV provides a source of vitamin D, which is essential for maintaining a healthy skeleton, eg prevention of rickets. The answer is that children should receive a certain amount of exposure to UV for health reasons but must avoid over-exposure and sunburn.
