Regulation Authority:

R.I. Gen. Laws 5-32

Purpose and Reason:

The Rhode Island Department of Health is proposing to amend "Practice of Electrolysis" to include laser hair removal in the regulations based upon statutory amendments (Pub. Law 19-129). The amendments being proposed are based upon a statutory amendment to R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 5-32 [“Electrolysis and Laser Hair Removal”] which added § 21 [“Practice of laser hair removal”] and amended several other sections. The statute which guides the proposed amendments differentiates between electrologists licensed before and after July 1, 2019.
