Welcome to NRPA's solarium list!

On these pages you will find a detailed overview of all solarium models registered at the NRPA. Solarium models not listed on these pages are not allowed to sell, rent out or use. Only UV type 3 models are allowed for cosmetic use in Norway, and those who offer solarium are responsible to ensure that these requirements are fulfilled.

Those who offer solarium to customers are at all times responsible for ensuring that the radiation is not too high, no matter what reason. If inspections show that the radiation from a solarium model exceeds the UV type 3 requirements, the sunstudio must correct the errors and document that the solarium model again is UV type 3. Solarium models and lamp combinations found not to satisfy UV type 3 will be removed from the lists. Information about changes will be published on this page.

All solarium models are now only specified with equivalency code ranges, high pressure lamp names and necessary ballasts, filters etc. See page Equivalence coding of fluorescent solarium lamps and StrålevernInfo 3:2014 "Ekvivalenskoding -en ny måte å angi tillatte rørtyper på" (in Norwegian only) for more information.

Models not re-measured with tubes with equivalency code have been given equivalency code ranges based on available information for the model (previously classified as UV type 3 with tubes with or without reflector, short tubes in separate part of the solarium or in combination with the long tubes etc.). See "News" below regarding which ranges these are.

If you find or suspect that a model have got wrong equivalency code ranges or other specifications, please contact us.

Please notice that changes may still be made to the specifications for some of the solarium models in the near future.

Regarding equivalency code intervals for solariums in Norway
From the 1st of May this year all solarium models in Norway, old and new, must have gotten an equivalency code interval.

Solarium models not measured with tubes with equivalency code before this date, will be given an equivalency code interval based on week lamps, predefined by NRPA and known to give UV type 3 in all accepted models.

The equivalency code intervals for solariums with these predefined and week lamps are as follows:

“Short” tubes used in combination with other tubes:

   Wattage-O-(2-3)/(0,9-1,2) I.e. the UV code intervall is the same for all wattages (9, 15, 25, 36, 55W etc)

All other tubes (used alone or in combination with the “short” tubes above):

Tubes without reflector:
   Wattage-O-(9-15)/(1,9-3,2) I.e. the UV code interval is the same for all wattages

Tubes with reflector:
   Wattage-R-(14-20)/(1,6-2,3) I.e. the UV code interval is the same for all wattages

Producers/distributors/owners wanting other/stronger tubes in their solarium models, and which have not already got an equivalency code interval, are kindly asked to send a notification (one for each model) including all required attachements (see page 3 in the notification form) to the NRPA as soon as possible and before the 1st of May. The notification form is found on NRPA's website: http://www.nrpa.no

20 August     The equivalency code range for 160W reflector tubes in models not re-measured is now slightly changed to 160-R-(14-20)/(1,5-2,3), after an application for allowance to use a tube formerly being what we called a "replacement tube". This change only affects a few models and is considered to be ok.
07 August     The solarium models megaSun 5600/5800 Super, megaSun 5600/5800 Super CPI, megaSun 6700/6800 Super, megaSun 6700/6800 Super CPI and megaSun 6900 Super are updated with new equivalency code ranges, and megaSun 6900 Super CPI is allowed to use.
06 August     The solarium model megaSun 4510 Super is updated with new equivalency code ranges.
02 July     The solarium model Ergoline Affinity 660 Dynamic Power is updated with equivalency code ranges and the models uwe iBed and uwe iSun are allowed to use.
26 June     Some of the solarium models approved in the '90s that had the same registration number (e.g. four different model names with reg.no. 97-304) have now been added a letter in the reg.no. (97-304A, 97-304B and so on).
