Why register?

It is an offence not to register. The purpose of the registration is to provide information to the Council about hairdressing businesses so that they can ensure that the facilities, equipment and procedures used are safe, hygienic and prevent the spread of disease. Premises may be subject to inspection.

What are the requirements?

The Council has also adopted byelaws for the purpose of securing satisfactory standards in registered premises. The byelaws were originally designed to cover fixed premises only, but the provisions relating to equipment, practices and personal hygiene are equally relevant to mobile hairdressers.

A person who is registered is required to display a copy of the registration certificate and of the byelaws.

Regard must also be had to the general duty of care of employers, employees and self-employed people required by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

If you require any further information please contact the Food and Safety Team
