Tanning Program

Tanning Program

The Scott County Health Department routinely inspects licensed Tanning establishments in Scott and Clinton Counties. 

The State of Iowa Department of Public Health contracts with the Scott County Health Department to conduct inspections on their behalf. Standards, rules and codes governing tanning and tattooing facilities are set by the Iowa Department of Public Health.

Tanning Program

Yearly inspections of tanning facilities are made to assure all tanning equipment is in compliance with Iowa and federal law, conditions are sanitary, records are properly kept and staff are knowledgeable about proper use of equipment.

Tanning operators are required to take a Tanning Operator Exam. The exam is administered at the Scott County Health Department. Individuals wanting to take the exam must make an appointment $25.00.

Operators must obtain a permit for their tanning from the Iowa Department of Public Health.

A list of permitted tanning facilities can be found at the Iowa Department of Public Health’s Tanning Program Web site at:
