In April 2011, a ban on businesses allowing under 18s to use sunbeds on their premises came into force in Wales and England.

The Welsh Government introduced further controls for sunbed use in Wales in October 2011.

To gain a better understanding of sunbed use in Wales, and the awareness and understanding of the regulations among the public, the Welsh Government commissioned questions in the Wales Omnibus Survey (February and March 2017) and the Children’s Omnibus Survey (April 2017).
