Australian Standard: AS/NZS 2635:2008 - SOLARIA FOR COSMETIC PURPOSES
This standard is required reading by all Solaria operators to ensure they comply with the law. If you operate Solaria for Cosmetic Purposes we recommend you click on the link above and purchase a copy without delay. The need for this Standard arose from recognition that there was no standardisation or formal regulation of equipment performance and day-to-day procedures in the large number of commercial solarium establishments operating within Australia and New Zealand. The Standard was prepared with a view to acknowledging this need by establishing requirements for installing, maintaining and operating one or more sun-tanning units for the purpose of administering cosmetic tanning. Although the general import of the Standard suggests its application to commercial establishments only, some of the operational requirements set out in the Standard are equally applicable as a guide to the domestic use of sun-tanning units.

The requirements set out by this Standard are divided as follows: Section 2 sets out requirements for installing and maintaining sun-tanning units, and Section 3 sets out requirements covering the operation of sun-tanning units. Section 3 includes requirements for the content of warning notices and client consent forms.

Endorsement of intentional exposure to ultraviolet radiation is not the object of this Standard. However, the Standard does acknowledge the continuing popularity of suntanning unit use and sets out requirements which, if complied with, establish a safer situation than that which accompanies uncontrolled cosmetic tanning practices.

Maximum Initial Exposure
Time for the initial sun-tanning exposure shall not exceed time Ti (in minutes) as determined from the following equation.

Ti =

0.5 x MED
UVReff X 60

 

The MEDk is:
Skin Type II = 250 J/m2
Skin Type III = 350 J/m2
Skin Type IV = 450 J/m2
Skin Type V = 450 J/m2
Skin Type VI = 450 J/m2

Maximum Repeated Exposure
Any single exposure in a sun-tanning unit should not exceed 0.9 MED.

Maximum Weekly Exposure
Repeated sun-tanning exposure shall not exceed 3 MED per week irrespective of the
exposure schedule. Repeated exposure shall be administered no sooner than 48 hours after the previous exposure including initial exposure.

Maximum Exposure Schedules
If you operate sunbeds in a commercial environment in Australia or New Zealand and would like information on our Solaria Exposure Guide, including our recommended meters, please contact us for more information.

Proper Usage of Solarmeter ® Ultraviolet Radiometer for Lamp Tests

  • Wear UV-block eye protection when checking UV lamps

  • Allow lamps to warm-up prior to taking readings (at least 5 min)

  • Hold sensor close to lamp or acrylic to measure individual lamp MED intensity. Hold sensor at 25cm above bench acrylic with canopy closed (approx body position), for overall canopy measurement

  • Press and hold push-button switch on face of unit. Aim sensor window in top panel of meter directly at UV source

  • Note reading on LCD and record for use with our Excel Spreadsheet Utility supplied with all Model 7.0 MED/Hour meters
