All licensed salons, booths and schools are inspected annually for safety and sanitation. The inspections are unannounced and occur at different times throughout the year. A facility that passes inspection receives a Certificate of Passed Annual Inspection card, which is posted by the licensee. A facility that fails inspection is allowed a short time to correct the violations. If, on re-inspection, the facility passes, a certificate is provided. If the facility fails the re-inspection, the case will be brought before the Commission's Investigating Committee.

Use the Salon Self-inspection Checklist (Adobe PDF format) often to be sure you are ready when the inspector comes.
