Formal Voting For European Non-Surgical CEN Standard

eu flagFor several years now work has been developing on a draft Non-Surgical Standard for the European aesthetics sector with input from UK clinical experts and patient representatives.

The Non-Surgical Standard draft has now reached final voting stage within CEN, the European Committee for Standardisation.

…a platform for the development of European Standards and other technical documents in relation to various kinds of products, materials, services and processes.

CEN supports standardization activities in relation to a wide range of fields and sectors including: air and space, chemicals, construction, consumer products, defence and security, energy, the environment, food and feed, health and safety, healthcare, ICT, machinery, materials, pressure equipment, services, smart living, transport and packaging.

Cosmetic Treatment Regulation in England

The issue of non-regulation or poor regulation of cosmetic surgery and treatments is one which is continually in the news in the UK, as despite reports and recommendations, there is as yet no system in place as yet for registration of cosmetic treatment providers in England or minimum qualifications for carrying out treatments.

As members of the EU (for now anyway) the UK would be subject to any EU level requirements.

SkinViva Training will continue to update this website with industry regulation news.
