The Environmental & Occupational Health Division (EOH) implements and enforces the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Regulations governing the operation of facilities that provide tanning services. These regulations set requirements for safety procedures, warning signs, and restrictions on who can use or operate tanning equipment. In order to provide tanning services in the city of Boston, a business must have an annual tanning facility permit from the EOH.
