Tanning Salons are regulated under Chapter 64E-17(PDF 28KB) of the Florida Administrative Code.
The Florida Department of Health in Pasco County inspects tanning facilities to reduce the risk of disease and injury to people who use tanning devices at tanning facilities in the county through plan review, inspection, consultation, and complaint investigation. Tanning Facilities in Pasco County are required to apply for an Application for Tanning Facility License (PDF 13kb).
All tanning devices are checked twice a year to assure that:
- They are maintained in good sanitary and mechanical condition
- Timers are operating properly
- Employees are properly trained
- Warning signs are in place
Every device must have the manufacturers recommendations attached to the machine or it must be made available to clients on the premises.
Operators must also have information concerning their liability insurance.
