Public Health Risk Activities
Activities such as Tattooing, Ear and Body Piercing are considered 'Public Health Risk Activities' under the Public Health Act 1997 (part 5, Division 3 and 4), due to the risks involved, especially in relation to diseases and infection. To carry out this type of activity in Meander Valley, you must be registered. You can find an application form for registration below. If the business changes ownership, the new owner must re-apply for registration, so the licence is in their own name before conducting any piercing, tattooing or acupuncture. For more specific information and guidelines on these activities, follow the links above.
