Hairdressers Registration Repeal Bill 1997

Bill No.16

SynopsisThe purpose of this Bill is to repeal the Hairdressers Registration Act 1946 and to remove unnecessary regulation and financial burden on the hairdressing sector of small business. It also abolishes the Hairdressers Registration Board and establishes a hairdressing industry account at Treasury. The need to register hairdressers is considered to be no longer necessary as a number of broader legislative instruments (such as legislation relating to occupational health and safety, public health and fair trading) already regulate the operation of hairdressing salons. Residual funds, generated from past annual registration fees paid by hairdressers, will be placed in the account and returned to the industry through the provision of training and support for the industry.
