If you want to open a new health or beauty business, you must register with council and comply with the Public Health and Wellbeing Act.
Examples of businesses that require registration:
- beauty therapy (waxing, threading, manicures, pedicures, laser, IPL, spray tanning, eyelash extensions)
- tattooing and piercing
- colonic irrigation
- any business involving penetration of the skin
Massage businesses are not required to be registered unless skin penetration is included in the activities.
