ARPANSA updated on their progress on 27th January 2016 and say they have received over 260 public submissions on the Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement on Intense Pulsed Light sources (IPLs) and Lasers for Cosmetic or Beauty Therapy. Now that's a lot to work through!

Keep your eyes open because if necessary, a second round consultation will be undertaken in mid-2016 before a 'decision' Regulatory Impact Statement is prepared to support the preferred option. They haven't said what the 'preferred option' is yet so let's wait for mid-2016 to digest the new information and then contribute to the decision-making process to formulate safer industry standards supported by a highly educated and skilled health workforce. #lasersafetyaustralia
