Exclamation ATTENTION ALL TANNING PEOPLE

The Entire Industry has to Weigh In and oppose this order!
We know from recent statements made by the FDA that the number of comments filed has an impact on the FDAs final decision. We also know that the American Academy of Dermatology and other anti-tanning lobbying groups are mounting an aggressive campaign to get their members to generate comments to the FDA in support of the order. This is a link to the AAD campaign website:

Please join us and contact the FDA to oppose the proposed order!

Please focus your remarks on the negative economic impact that reclassification would have on you personally and talk about how this change could affect your business and livelihood. Please use the issues outlined above and apply them to your business. For example:
  • The order is vague regarding equipment already in the field, potentially making it illegal and requiring you to replace much or all of your equipment.
  • The order adds great expense for companies bringing new products to market adding additional costs for you and your customers.
  • The vagueness of the order related to lamp replacement could make lamp replacement cost prohibitive.
  • The industry is already struggling in the recession and as a result of the 10% excise tax being imposed on tanning services. This change will push many small businesses over the edge.
Comments are due by August 7. Please dont delay! Remember, FDAs final decision likely will be influenced by the number of comments filed by members of our association and within our industry.
Please send the ITA a copy of the comments you submit to the FDA. If you have any question or need assistance, please contact the ITA admin@theita.com or call 202 367 1142.

Re: ATTENTION ALL TANNING PEOPLE

As a Salon owner in Texas I have weighed in on this and it appears SB 329 has passed. This will have a huge impact on my salon. First the Tan Tax and then this.

Re: ATTENTION ALL TANNING PEOPLE

SB 329 is the under 18 tanning ban. I got nervous last night when I read what trstuart posted so I googled it. Nothing to do with the FDA.

Re: ATTENTION ALL TANNING PEOPLE

I also thought it was the classification change thing. Thanks for clarifying this.
