What happens after I have submitted my application for a skin piercing registration?

On receipt of a valid application we will process and issue your certificate.  Once issued, the Environmental Health team will be notified and will contact you to discuss your registration. 

The local authority may attach conditions to a certificate of registration.

How long will it take to process my application?

Tacit consent applies.  This means that you will be able to act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from the local authority by the end of the 60 day target completion period.

Can I appeal against a decision?

Please contact Licensing Services in the first instance.
