Information to local municipality inspectors

Regulations for radiation protection and the use of radiation went into effect January 1, 2004. Under the provisions of these regulations, authority was delegated to local municipalities to carry out inspections of artificial tanning equipment and to implement the necessary measures.

National regulations concerning radiation protection and the use of artificial tanning devices in Norway are elaborated in the following guides: “Instructions to owners of sunbeds and enterprises offering sun tanning sessions” and “Instructions for dealers and importers of artificial tanning devices”. You should be familiar with these directives, also with respect to dealings with municipal inspection authorities.

NRPA encourages local inspection authorities to make active use of these web pages, and to remain abreast with newsletters and other news items that are published here. Questions concerning current regulations and requirements may be directed to NRPA.

NRPA offers special seminars for persons engaged in the inspection of artificial tanning devices. Contact NRPA to arrange a seminar. Seminars are offered on the condition that there are at least ten participants signed up.
