(a) A tanning facility shall provide to any patron who wishes to use a tanning device
located within its tanning facility a disclosure and consent form relating to use
of a tanning device that contains the current United States Food and Drug Administration
warning as follows: “Danger. Ultraviolet Radiation. Follow instructions. Avoid overexposure. As with natural sunlight, overexposure can cause eye and skin injury and allergic
reactions. REPEATED EXPOSURE MAY CAUSE PREMATURE AGING OF THE SKIN AND SKIN CANCER. WEAR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR; FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN SEVERE BURNS OR LONG-TERM
INJURY TO THE EYES. Medications or cosmetics may increase your sensitivity to the ultraviolet radiation. Consult physician before using tanning device if you are using medications or have
a history of skin problems or believe yourself especially sensitive to sunlight. If you do not tan in the sun, you are unlikely to tan from use of this product.”
The disclosure and consent form must have a place for the patron's signature and the
date. A signed and dated copy of the disclosure and consent form shall be maintained by
the tanning facility and remains valid for one year from the date it was signed.
(b) All patrons are required to present proof of age prior to use of a tanning device. Proof of age shall be satisfied with a driver's license or other government-issued
identification containing the date of birth and a photograph of the individual. Persons under the age of eighteen may not be permitted to use a tanning device.
