Warning and Consent Forms

It is unlawful for any operator of a tanning facility to allow a person younger than 18 years old to use a tanning device. There are two exceptions to this prohibition listed in Utah Health Code 26-15-13(4)(a)(b); 1) the minor has a written order from a physician; or 2) at each time of use, the minor is accompanied at the tanning facility by a parent or legal guardian who provides written consent authorizing the minor to use the tanning device.

The consent form must conform to the Utah Department of Health Tanning Consent Form. A pdf copy of this form can be downloaded by clicking on Warning and Consent for Tanning link below.
