The Tanning Facilities Program ensures that the risk of overexposure to ultraviolet light from tanning devices is reduced. Salons are inspected twice a year for sanitation and safety practices. The Florida Department of Health in Duval County (DOH-Duval) must permit all tanning facilities open to the public.
Chapter 64E - 17 F.A.C. and 381.89, Florida Statutes (F.S.) is the rule and statute, which contains the requirements for tanning facility operation. One particular aspect of operation is that Tanning facilities may allow customers to tan only once within a 24 hour period. See 64E - 17.002(2)(m) F.A.C.
Just as too much outdoor sun can be dangerous, Indoor tanning can be risky if you are not careful. For more information on tanning safely, click here for a brochure on Tanning Safety Facts. Certain foods or medications can increase your risk, so check with your medical provider before using indoor tanning facilities.
All tanning facilities open to the public must be permitted prior to opening, and operating permits are renewed annually. For a copy of the application form for new or renewal permits, click here.
