As part of enhancing public awareness of infection risks, information sheets have been developed for clients receiving particular procedures. In some instances, clients must be provided this information in writing.
Clients who receive tattooing, ear piercing, body piercing, or any other skin-penetration procedures must be provided with written information about the risk of infectious diseases associated with the process that is accurate and not misleading.
Regulation 35 and 38 of the Public Health and Wellbeing Regulations 2019 provide that the Secretary to the Department of Health and Human Services may approve forms for the purposes of regulations. The approved forms are included above and a copy of the Gazettal is available at Government Gazette - Notice about registration and information sheets.
