Waste Disposal and Records

Sharps containers should be disposed of when 2/3 filled. Disposal must be in a manner approved for bio-hazardous materials.
Other biomedical waste (i.e. gauze, swabs etc) must be placed in sealed containers or bags for final disposal in a manner approved by the municipality for low-risk biomedical waste.


The studio will maintain records of all clients who have been pierced, which will include at minimum the following information:

  1. Date of procedure
  2. Description of procedure
  3. Name of client
  4. Address or telephone number of client

These records must be available within 24 hours of demand, and must be kept for a minimum of 2 years from the date of procedure.

In the event of a public health incident, tracing the clients of the studio may become necessary. Failure to keep adequate records should be cause to revoke the studio's licence.
