Shortly before Parliament broke up for its summer recess the government confirmed that it intends publish a public consultation on a licensing scheme for non-surgical cosmetic procedures later this summer.
In a written Parliamentary answer, Maria Caulfield, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Women, said the government will also work with interested organisations to determine the education and training requirements that practitioners will have to meet, alongside hygiene, cleanliness, and insurance requirements, to demonstrate they can practise safely.
The JCCP warmly welcomes this latest development. The new licensing regime will safeguard people who decide to have cosmetic treatments and it follows legislation that was introduced last year making it illegal to administer dermal fillers and injectable toxin treatments, to under 18s. The licensing scheme will introduce consistent standards that individuals conducting non-surgical cosmetic procedures will have to meet.
This is a major step on the road to the effective regulation of non-surgical cosmetic procedures in England.
