Registering a premise

Hairdressers, campgrounds, offensive trades and funeral directors must all be registered with Council prior to opening for business. 

An environmental health officer will inspect the premise and if all required standards are met a certificate of registration will be issued. The certificate runs from 1 October to 30 September and must be renewed each year.

Registered premises are inspected regularly to make sure they comply with the legislative requirements.

Hairdressers and hairdressing salons

You need a certificate of registration from Council before you open a hairdressing salon. The certificate of registration shows that your salon complies with the structural and sanitary requirements set out through the Government's Health (Hairdressers) Regulations

Depending on the proposed set up of your salon, you may also need building and resource consent. 

Beauty therapy premises and tattoo parlours are not required to be registered.
