(210 ILCS 145/20)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 8351-20)
Requirements for permit.
(a) No sunlamp product or ultraviolet lamp intended for use in any
sunlamp product shall be installed in any tanning facility, the use of
which is offered to the public for a fee or any other consideration, unless
the products or facilities have been found to be in compliance with the
standards established by the Department by rule. Tanning units and all the
component parts thereof manufactured on or after May 7, 1980 shall meet the
provisions of federal regulations. Other performance standards shall apply
for units manufactured before May 7, 1980.
(b) For each sunlamp product and ultraviolet lamp, the ratio of the
irradiance within the wavelength range of 200
through 400 nanometers shall not exceed 0.003
at any distance or direction from the product or lamp.
(c) Each sunlamp shall incorporate a timing device with multiple timer
settings adequate for the manufacturer's recommended exposure intervals to
produce the expected results. The timing device shall not provide a timing
interval in excess of the product's recommended maximum exposure time, or
10 minutes. This requirement does not preclude the ability of the user to
reset the time. The timer may not automatically reset and cause radiation
emission to resume for a period greater than the unused portion of the
timer cycle when emission from the sunlamp product has been terminated.
(d) Each sunlamp product shall incorporate a control on the product to
enable the user to manually terminate radiation without pulling the
electrical plug or coming in contact with the ultraviolet lamp.
(e) Each sunlamp product shall be accompanied by the number of sets of
protective eyewear that is equal to the maximum number of persons intended
to be exposed simultaneously to product radiation. The eyewear shall be
provided by the manufacturer and shall meet or exceed his product
recommendations. All protective eyewear shall be properly sanitized prior
to each use.
(f) Each ultraviolet lamp contained within the sunlamp product shall be
shielded so as to not come into contact with the user. A screen or
transparent cover shall be used for this purpose.
(g) Each sunlamp product in which the person is in a standing position
shall provide a handrail for the user to hold onto during operation of
tanning facility. Each tanning facility shall have, clearly marked, the
appropriate position the user is to assume prior to operation.
(h) Each sunlamp product shall prominently display the following warning
label. "DANGER - Ultraviolet radiation. Follow instructions. As with
natural sunlight, overexposure can cause eye injury and sunburn, repeated
exposure may cause premature aging of the skin and skin cancer. Medications
or cosmetics applied to the skin may increase your sensitivity to
ultraviolet light. Consult a physician before using lamp if taking any
medication or if you believe yourself especially sensitive to sunlight."
(i) Each tanning facility shall be so equipped to dissipate heat that
the interior temperature does not exceed 100 degrees fahrenheit or
34 degrees centigrade.
