Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of the Indoor Tanning Association, FTC File No. 082 3159

Tanning beds should be regulated and persons under the age of 18 should need parental consent to use. Skin cancer rates continue to increase and it known that increased UV exposure is a risk factor. By regulating the use of tanning beds this would be a healthy and important first step to drive the onset of skin cancer down. For this industry to stand by and state that they offer a "safe product" is irresponsible to the consumer and general public.
