Consultation: Draft Regulations to define ‘objects’ used in intimate piercing procedures

Status: CURRENT
Launch date: 20 Aug 2018 12:12
Closing date: 05 Oct 2018 09:30
Source: Welsh Government

The Welsh Government would like our views on draft regulations that define ‘objects’ to prohibit their use in intimate piercing on people under 18.

The current legislation makes it an offence to perform an intimate piercing on under 18s in Wales. The regulations will widen the scope of the legislation to cover the following:

  • flesh plugs
  • flesh tunnels
  • dermal and micro-dermal anchors
  • skin divers
  • any other object which is not jewellery.

Please find the consultation document, annexes, and a word version of the response form which may help to shape your comments on the Welsh Government website here: https://beta.gov.wales/draft-regulations-define-objects-used-intimate-piercing-procedures

This consultation has been rated “response desirable”.

I would be grateful if you were to therefore respond with any views and comments.

Please also feel free to circulate this e-mail to fellow RCN members, RCN networks, Forums and colleagues.

In order to allow time for our authorisation process we would need to receive any comments by the 5th October 2018 via email to Policy.PublicAffairs.Wales@rcn.org.uk or using the ‘Have Your Say’ page on the above tab.
