What regulations/by-laws affect IPL (pulsed light) & laser operators in New Zealand?
At present, most local councils have not created regulations about the safe use of IPL and Lasers. As most do not have the resources to police the industry, so currently it is a self-regulated and self-guided industry. In July 2014, Auckland Council put in place bylaw which ensures operators meet mandatory minimum training and experience. The ministry of health (MOH) are working on findings from an industry wide survey that may end up forming new legislation. This is still in progress and expected to take years to be pushed through, if at all. We follow the NZ Laser Training code of practice, and have strict health & hygiene procedures.
