Healthy communities help us protect ourselves, our families and our friends. That’s why we worked hard to make commercial solariums a thing of the past.
In 2012 the NSW Government announced that commercial solariums would be banned in NSW from 1st January 2015. This move followed two audits of the solarium industry that found poor compliance with regulations. We helped make this ban a reality with CanAct members making submissions to government and meeting with relevant MPs and Ministers.
With over 40 melanoma related deaths caused by solarium use each year in Australia, the banning of commercial solariums will save lives.
