To improve the regulatory environment and ensure patient safety in the undertaking of cosmetic procedures, this report made nine recommendations which have been, or are in the process of being, implemented including:

  • a new offence for medical practitioners who carry out certain cosmetic services and treatment in an unlicensed private health facility
  • tighter regulations for the prescribing, use, storage, access, and administration of medicines commonly used in procedures
  • additional regulations on extreme body modification procedures which are carried out by non-medical practitioners.
