Initial engagement with practitioners has confirmed a limited awareness of the implications of the mandatory licensing scheme to be introduced as part of the Public Health (Wales) Act 2017.

The mandatory licensing scheme will provide a level playing field for practitioners operating in Wales and will ensure a more consistent and robust approach to enforcement. This in turn will help minimize health risks associated with these practices.

Welsh Government has published a guide which details the key requirements of the proposed licensing scheme. The flyer can be downloaded from the downloads section of this page.
