Appeared not on the radar: the law governing protection against non-ionising radiation the law governing protection against non-ionizing radiation of the July 29, 2009 (NiSG), which is entered into force on 04.08.2009, however in the cosmetics industry, particularly among manufacturers of cosmetic equipment, as well as under the cosmetic institutes, hardly anyone took. Only the operators of tanning beds were in the picture, since the law was introduced banning use of minors. But on the NiSG is not limited. Rather, it regulates the protection and the prevention of adverse effects of non-ionizing radiation, which can be caused by the operation of systems for the application of non-ionizing radiation in the wide scope. It is for equipment for the medical applications of non-ionizing radiation in medical and dentistry as well as for commercial use outside of medicine, especially for cosmetic purposes.
Thus the NiSG concerns mainly manufacturers and users of IPL and laser devices to the Permanent Hair removal, as well as devices for cavitation and Microdermabrasion. The law is non-ionising radiation: electrical, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields in the frequency range of 0 heart up to 300 gigahertz, optical radiation in the wavelength range from 100 nm up to 1 millimeter and ultrasound in the frequency range from 20 kHz to 1 GHz. The Act imposes special conditions on the operation of the relevant equipment. So plants that can emit non-ionizing radiation, may be operated only for cosmetic purposes or other applications to the people outside the medical or dentistry, if their operation in a regulation to be determined requirements are followed. Following requirements should be set according to in a decree (presumably until March 2010): certain limits for the radiation that must not be exceeded (otherwise than in the medical field to set limits in the cosmetic field must not be exceeded at all. Risk-benefit assessment for exceeding set limits by the doctor applies only to the medical field that enshrined in section 2) NiSG, which periodically checks the equipment consulting and information requirements for application of the equipment, if necessary, warnings, requirements on the protection of minors must be, demands on the expertise of the users proof obligations with regard to the authorities.
