The Sunbed Association (TSA) was set up in 1995 as the association for the sunbed industry. It is a non-profit making organisation, representing operators, manufacturers and distributors of sunbeds and lamps. TSA is a limited company registered at Companies House. Annual audited accounts must be lodged with Companies House. The Sunbed Association name/logo is a registered trade mark.
The primary aim of TSA is to promote consistent good practice throughout the industry. All members, therefore, must adhere to TSA’s strict Code of Practice – The Sunbed Code. The Code of Practice is based on both the European Standard: EN 60335-2-27 (drawn up by representatives from the medical and scientific professions and from industry) and the Health and Safety Executive Guidance Note “Controlling Health Risks from the use of UV Tanning Equipment”.
