(A) The operator of a tanning facility shall maintain a record for each individual patron which includes dates exposed, length of exposure, and other required data. This record shall be completed and initialed by the patron prior to each tanning session, and must be kept on file for one year from the date of the patron's last exposure. The record shall include the following:
(1) Date of most recent exposure to UVA/UVB;
(2) Acknowledgment that the patron has reviewed the photosensitive drug list;
(3) Acknowledgment of receipt of protective eyewear;
(4) Acknowledgment that the patron has been advised of maximum exposure time for the session in the unit to which the patron has been assigned;
(5) This record shall also include the following warning: "some harmful changes which may be caused by repeated overexposure to UVA/UVB radiation include cataracts, skin cancer, premature aging and possible photosensitive reactions when using perfumes, cosmetics and certain drugs, including some antibiotics and birth control pills."
(6) All customers shall have their skin type computed and annotated on their customer card prior to their first tanning session.
(B) If the patron is under eighteen years of age, the operator shall obtain the written consent from the parent or legal guardian of the patron prior to any tanning session. This written consent shall be signed at the licensed location, and shall specify the number of sessions consented to, and shall become part of the record of the patron. The minor patron may then alone sign the patron card for the remainder of the consented sessions.
(C) Tanning facilities which maintain records on computer or data processing equipment may use a single data sheet for all patrons tanning in a single day provided that the data is then transferred daily to each individual's permanent file.
