Skip Additional FDA label requirement
 

Additional FDA label requirement

On June 2, 2014, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reclassified tanning booths and beds as Class II medical devices. This has the most impact on tanning equipment manufacturers but businesses offering tanning services have a new labeling requirement to meet.

Effective August 26st 2015 all tanning equipment must have a label saying "Attention: This sunlamp product should not be used on persons under the age of 18 years" The wording on the label must be at least 10 millimeters high. The label must be clearly visible to the user prior to they activate the equipment.

If the equipment manufacturer does not provide your tanning business with labels for your equipment it becomes your responsibility to procure and attach the required labels

A copy of the 21 CFR 878.4635 may be viewed here.

A sample of labels from one equipment manufacturer may be viewed here.
