Tanning Equipment

The State of Arkansas does not regulate tanning beds under Radiation Control Programs because tanning equipment does not emit ionizing radiation. For information and safety advice, please see the U.S. Food and Drug Administration link below or contact the Southwest Office of the U.S. FDA in Dallas, Texas.
