Dear Delegates, Members and Special Guests:

As this year is coming to a close I am drawn to reflect on the accomplishments and
advancements of NIC over the past two years. When I was elected to the office of the Presidency
in 2005, I was filled with both excitement and apprehension. The first year, 2005, was one of
learning and growth. Luckily, I was in the enviable position of being able to take the advice of
President Ronald Reagan who said, “Surround yourself with the best people you can
find, delegate authority, and don't interfere as long as the policy you've
decided upon is being carried out.”

My efforts and those of NIC and our accomplishments over the past two years could never have
been achieved without an extremely competent and supportive board and staff. They gave me
the confidence to rise to meet the challenges that faced me each day.

When I was given a vote of confidence by being reelected in 2006, I knew that I was up to each
new challenge that we would face. I am pleased to say that during these past 2 years, NIC has
seen one of the largest growth periods of any presidential term. We have been privileged enough
to see North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Montana and Ohio return to the NIC testing program.
Oregon and Kentucky are new to the testing program and both Washington and Georgia
expanded their use of NIC testing to include the written and practical examinations, respectively.
Additionally, we have serious negotiations going on at this time with several other states and I’m
confident that we will be able to report additional successes in short order. In the international
community we’ve also realized unprecedented growth including contract signings with both
South Korea and Puerto Rico. These efforts and other ongoing international initiatives are
resulting in us truly making a name for ourselves in the international market.

When I was initially interviewed by the nominating committee back in 2002, I was asked about
my personal agenda within NIC. I told them then that I would like to develop and launch an
advanced esthetics license. Thanks to the hard work of Larry Walthers and the NEC, I was
thrilled to see the development of this examination. I am so excited to be able to report that the
wonderful state of Virginia has been the first to implement my dream. I know that many other
states will be quick to jump on-board, allowing me to complete my agenda and to fulfill my
dream.

During the past two years, I have also made it a personal challenge to encourage states to adopt
and benefit from the advantages of Computer Based Testing (CBT). I am so pleased that more
and more states are seeing the value and security of CBT while eliminating paper and pencil
exams.



                                                 9
I’m proud of my accomplishments with NIC and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to
serve the delegates of this amazing association. I have made friends that I know will be with me
a lifetime, and for that I am extremely grateful. I can never thank Debra Norton and Mary Manna
enough for their selfless support and for the wealth of knowledge that they’ve imparted. Also to
Kirby Morris, Larry Walthers and Michael Hill for always being there for me, you guys are my
rock. To our partners, SMT, DLRoope, PCS and LaserGrade….what can I say, we make one,
unbeatable team!

Finally to all of you, the delegates, I hope you will always realize my total commitment to NIC
as this has become more than a position, it has become my purpose.

Respectfully,

Rosanne Kinley
NIC President

                                      Kenneth Young

Since the national conference I have worked on the following:

   1. Steve Colarusso and I have established Missoula Montana as the site of the region 3 & 4
      meeting the weekend of April 22. (report sent to Rosanne and Larry)
   2. Met with the Mississippi barber board to help them understand equating and scaling. I
      also helped them to understand why studying the Milady review questions might not be
      enough to prepare them for the exam. I pointed out the difference in how the questions
      are developed. I also gave an overview of the NIC.
   3. Attended a SMT workshop with the Barbers and Electrologists. While there I also helped
      create a new form for Instructors.
   4. I attended the NOCA convention with Mary Manna. ( report here at this meeting)




                                              13
Region 3 Directors Report

As region 3 director I hosted the region 3 and 4 meeting in Missoula Mt. I think all present
would agree it was a very successful meeting. I traveled to North Carolina and presented an
overview of NIC testing. The NIC won the bid and NC will be using the NIC exams. I attended
the NOCA conference with Mary Manna. We networked with many of our partners as well as
learned a great deal about accrediting our exam. I worked on the web site committee. I attended
all meetings of the NIC board.

NIC/AACS Committee Report

The NIC/AACS Committee is pleased to inform President Kinley and the NIC delegation that
the industry relations with the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) have
never been better. AACS President Tony Fragomeni spoke to our delegation at the NIC Annual
Conference in 2006 about the AACS commitment of supporting the NIC National Examination
Program in order to create mobility for professionals in the Cosmetology Industry.

As Chairman of the NIC/AACS committee and as an AACS Advisory Board Member I have
attended the AACS Conference March 25th - 27th and July 14th – 17th in Las Vegas, NV.. The
conference was a success and International Cosmetology Licensing Organization (ICLO)
founder Mr. Sung Lee met with schools as well as NIC and AACS members to talk about the
ICLO and how NIC and AACS will fit into the organization.

I am pleased to inform everyone that NIC will be having an NEC and Executive Board meeting
with AACS next year.

It is a pleasure to serve NIC in this capacity. If you have any suggestions or comments please
contact me or any of the AACS committee members.

Sincerely,
KIRBY MORRIS

                                   NOVEMBER 16 – 19, 2005
                                        Long Beach CA
                                   Ken Young & Mary Manna

Overview: Thank you for allowing Mary and myself to attend the NOCA conference. We both
enjoyed the conference and the many activities they had planned. The conference provided an
excellent opportunity for networking and learning. The number one benefit of attending the
conference is that we learned how well our partners keep us informed. We both felt SMT had
given us most of the information that was presented in the classes. Also the information we gain
working with the NEC, Kirby, Larry et al, made most of the classes a review time. As for
networking we got to spend some quality time with Reed and Dana from SMT including a dinner
hosted by Lee Schroeder on the Queen Mary. Promissor hosted a luncheon and I was able to
visit with Stephan and some of his subordinates about what the future might hold. Most of the
conversation was about how we cannot be bidding on this and that together. I reminded him that
we will honor our agreement that we cannot bid with anyone until January ’06. The classes were
varied and informative although as noted served more as a review. Most of the groups in
attendance were more interested in certification than licensing. Also most in attendance were
from associations like ours with a large percentage from the health and related industries.

Wednesday afternoon: We attended a class called “Bullet Proof Your Test”. Basically we
prioritized the seriousness of various breaches and what type of response would be appropriate.
Some things to consider when considering a plan for response to possible security problems
would be threat probability and threat impact. We were given a chart to help asses the risk and
the appropriate response.

We then met with John Fremer of CAVEON SECURITY AUDITS. His company for a fee will
go in and access any security issues your testing may have. Attached to this report is his
proposal. It could be added to the agenda for NEC in January if you feel we need this service.

Thursday: We attended a class called “Have Test Will Travel” taught by Dr. Schroeder. One of
the things that was mentioned that can be done with foreign language test here in the states is to
present the test in English and the native language. There was also alot of information on the
legal side of doing business including how to set up foreign corporations and the pitfalls. Dr
Schroeder seems very knowing in this area. Another suggestion that came out of this class was
having our no compete clause put in Vietnamese, Spanish and any other language that is
translated.

The next class was “Recruiting, Selecting and Retaining SME”S”. The best information that
came out of this class was that we spoil our SME’s. We are the only group that gives the SME a
generous stipend. I tried to get some creative ideas on recruiting Vietnamese SME’s. No ideas
were presented as the other associations do not have the same dynamics as we do in testing.

The last class of the day was “Innovative and Cost Effective Methods of using Technology to
Interact with SME’s”. This was a very general overview on methods of reducing costs when




                                                27
meeting with SME’s. Mary and I agreed that with the type of work our SME’s do and with our
security issues it would be hard to use any of this information.

Friday: Business Plan for the Implementation and Development of a New Certification
Program. This class a primer in the process of test development. It is what we do every time we
create or update our tests.

“Test Development 101…” again this was a rehash with detail on developing test. Since our
tests are multiple choice and we have already created a good test, this class was not very
exciting.

Saturday: I started in the “RFP Process the Devil is in the Details.” This class was about writing
a RFP not reading them. My thought was I could work backwards, if I know how to write an
RFP then it would be very easy to read and respond. Unfortunately the class was more about the
internet, developing and using it relative to the RFP process, I decided to move over to Reeds
class “Comparability of Job Analysis Survey Administration”. Mary attended this meeting from
the beginning. The basic concept of this program was to compare an Internet survey with a
paper and pencil. Our basic feeling is that there is not much difference in the results however the
costs of the internet survey are much lower and remember Reed is our guy.

Conclusion: All the classes have handouts so any classes we did or did not attend had some type
of information available. If it can be copied I will make a disc for all of us.

Again Mary and I thank everyone for allowing us to go to the NOCA convention. We think we
represented the NIC in a very positive way.

August 13, 2007

Madam President, Board members and Guest;

On April 22 – 23, it was my honor to be a guest speaker at the Society of Plastic Surgical Skin
Care Specialists 2007 Conference, held in New York.

I was a part of a panel and my topic was legislation. I gave a PowerPoint presentation on the
different states and what is required to practice the art of esthetics in the salons. I also
highlighted those states that have certification programs that allow for advanced practice. And
those that have legislation forbidding some advanced practices.

After the entire panel had given their presentation we had some time for question and
answers.

I fell like it was a very good opportunity for me as a representative for NIC to network with all
the professionals in the field of skin care.

Most especially now that the issue of licensing waxing and laser services is being introduced
around the country.

I did get some good feed back from a few states and I hope it was beneficial to all of the states
that were represented.

SPSSC CONFERENCE REPORT

Society of Skin Care Specialists
SPSSC Conference
April 2007
New York City, NY

TOPIC: NIC, RECIPROCITY/ENDORSEMENT. AND THE MASTER ESTHETICIAN
EXAM

Thank you for the opportunity to represent NIC at the SPSSC Conference in NYC. It was a
pleasure and a much appreciated challenge to talk about NIC, State to State Endorsement, and
the Master Esthetician Exam. I was part of a three person panel under Legislation and Legalities.

I felt that the assigned topic was achieved. The group was given the history of NIC, it's mission
and accomplishments, it's validity and overall importance within the Cosmetology field, it's
outstanding position and history with regards to endorsement, and it's future vision. Emphasis
was explicit and the Esthetics Master Exam was explained as to it's content and time line. Of
course, education for esthetics was at the forefront and the audience did applaud during the
presentation when they agreed with the content explaining the need for advanced education. As
a whole, I firmly believe that the topic was accepted and delivered in a non-complicated, precise
manner.

Thank you again, for having the faith in me to represent this wonderful organization. I wish
NIC continued success.

ARKANSAS:
HB1368 (passed in a modified version and is now ACT 244) - This legislation recomposes the

Mike Beebe’s signature last month. Some existing members of the Board will not fulfill their
terms because of these revisions. Here are the substantive changes occurring to the Board’s
composition:
      Terms will be staggered annually on January 15, which will prevent multiple
         vacancies from occurring at one time.
      The positions will be as follows:
         * 4 cosmetologist positions
         * 1 manicurist position
         * 1 aesthetic position

         * 1 director position specifying that the person must be over a cosmetology
           program in a state-supported school
         * 1 consumer representative position specifying that the person is over 60 years
           of age
      Members cannot have a contract or pending bid for a contract with the board.

SB229 (passed with numerous revisions) - Many of the revisions are to clean up in nature,
however it also contains the following substantives revisions:
    Modification to the aesthetics definition that will allow an aesthetician to perform
      services on any part of the body and clearly states that waxing is an eligible service.
    Practitioners will be allowed to work outside a licensed school or establishment under
      certain circumstances.
    The penalty provision will be simplified and organized.
    Clarification will be given on criminal convictions and dishonesty as reasons for
      disciplinary action.
    The mandatory retirement age for Board employees will be removed.
    Clarification will be given to hold the Director responsible for day-to-day and
      employment decisions.
    Modification to the examinations removes the Board as the examiners and instead
      specifies that the inspectors must administer the exam or the Board must outsource this
      responsibility.
    Clarification will be given that examinations must be held on a monthly basis.
    The fee schedule will be removed from the law and will be placed in the rules.


                                               33
   Exam pre-requisites will be simplified and organized.
   Clarification will be given to explain the written exam covers both the core domain and
    law.
   Clarification will be given to require a reciprocity applicant to have taken a national exam
    in a previous state and must take the Arkansas law exam to become licensed in this state.
   Licenses will include a photograph.
   The renewal cycle will change to a 2-year cycle and on the practitioner’s birthday for
    licensees, establishments and school owners will continue to renew their licenses on
    December 31, unless the owner desires to renew all licenses simultaneously on the 2-year
    birthday cycle.
   The Board will be mandated to establish rule guidelines in using chemicals and
    equipment when performing cosmetological services.
   A lifetime license will be available for persons 65 years of age and who have been
    actively engaged in practicing and/or teaching for 30 years or more.
   A medical wavier for practitioner will be available when the practitioner is under the care
    of a physician for a long-term medical condition.
   The Board will have the option to impose a penalty in the form of a health/safety

Website Committee Report
Steve Colarusso, Chair

Madame President,

Thank you for the opportunity to work on this committee. We are making progress in
producing an updated website that will better fit the mission of NIC and serve our
members, testing candidates and interested parties.

We have been working with our present webmaster Mr. Jerry Brooks, who has sent out
a request for ideas that will help the site capture the essence of NIC. Personally, I think
that Mr. Brooks is well suited to help us accomplish our goals, his company provides
sophisticated web design services for several high profile clients, and he is willing to
continue to work with us as we grow.

Mr. Brooks has been analyzing our current site and has established an outline of our
present display. The next step in the process will be to have one of his designers review
our mission statement along with the suggestions he has received from this committee
and others. After this the designer will create an outline that will function as a sort of
flow chart for the information we wish to present. Once the outline is complete a
preliminary site can be designed for review.

Some of the ideas that have been discussed are members only area that can be used
to keep member boards informed of NIC and industry developments, possible forums
where members can hold a virtual “meeting” by posting and responding to messages.
There is also the potential to use the site for real-time meetings of committees and
boards similar to the way we currently utilize conference calls.

Once some of these design goals have been completed we will have relatively firm
ideas of what the redesign will cost. There will still be variables to consider that will
mostly be driven by how much technology we wish to use in the site.

Thanks to my colleagues on the committee for their input and Debra Norton for her
ideas and efforts in coordinating this task. Respectfully submitted,



S. M. Colarusso

NIC National Endorsement Committee Report
Steve Colarusso, Chair



Madame President,

Thank you for the opportunity to serve NIC as the Chairman of this committee. The
following is a compilation of the survey responses received. Responses were received
form 20 states. Some quick statistics from the responses are:

Of the states responding 11 states or 55% use one or more NIC examinations as part of
their licensing process, 19 states or 95% offer some form of reciprocity or endorsement.

Requirements for reciprocity or endorsement vary greatly, of the 19 states offering
reciprocity or endorsement 18 states or 95% will accept one or more NIC examinations
as part of their reciprocity/ endorsement process.

Educational requirements also have quite a variance with some of the responding
states not listing any educational requirements, 15 states reported requirements that
vary a minimum of 8th grade to a maximum of a high school diploma or its equivalent.




Respectfully submitted,



S. M. Colarusso, committee chair

                            NIC Health and Safety Committee Report
August 2007

The committee wishes to thank Lois Wiskur for her excellent reporting and interest in the coordination of infection control
issues of concern to this committee as a regular part of the NIC bulletin.

The beauty industry must “STEP UP” regarding infection control issues. While much of the industry is very conscientious
there is a huge risk posed to keeping clients going to salons. There is becoming a general public view that the industry is
complacent about infection control and protection of its clients. Perceptions are that pedicures are unsafe, and healthy
protection of the public by salons is questionable. The issues presented below are supported by science, general public
infection control, and blood borne pathogen standards.

All disinfection and storage is referenced in accordance with the NIC disinfection standards and dry storage
standard available through the NIC examination program or at nictesting.org under policies.
                     Issues of greatest interest this past year has been:
  I. General Infection Control including Industry terminology and its use; and regulation
     compliance.
         a. Words such as sanitation should be traded for better terminology, “Infection
              Control” or “to disinfect.” We disinfect we do not sanitize. The term sanitize
              means an effort at cleaning was made. It does not mean that the cleansing has an
              effective degree of proper protection from disease and contamination. Clients are
              becoming more and more sophisticated and assurance is needed by them that they
              are safe when receiving beauty services. Watch for the next NIC bulletin which
              will include an article on terminology. Again thank you Lois. Industry textbooks
              have incorporated the updated terminology, as well as NIC examinations.
         b. Proper hand washing remains the single most effective tool against infection and
              cross contamination. The importance of regular and frequent hand washing
              cannot be under estimated. There is simply no substitute for hand washing.
              Thorough hand washing prior to the first service of the day, between each service;
              and after eating, drinking, smoking, using the restroom as well as after the last
              service of the day is required.
         c. Consultation including pre analysis and post analysis of every service and pre
              cleansing each area of the body prior to treatment should be mandatory, including
              pre shampooing every client prior to a hairdressing service.
         d. Disinfect or Discard. Absolutely every item, of equipment, tool, implement,
              material, or object used on a client must be disinfected or discarded. Only non
              porous items are capable of meeting the EPA standard of disinfection. Linen’s
              should be washed in as hot water as the fabric can tolerate with chlorine bleach
              added. All porous nail finishing implements must be discarded after use. They
              are not capable of meeting the EPA standard of disinfection and therefore shall
              not be used. Any attempt at washing them and submerging them in disinfectant is
              an improvement however this procedure is not effective and does not represent
              proper disinfection. Many salons cut them into useable portions to minimize
              costs. Some salons recycle them to ceramic or other type industries requiring
              finishing tools. These industries are happy to receive the discounted price and
              regulation is assured that they will not be used on people.


                                                             48
          e. Dry Storage of disinfected tools requires isolation from contaminated ones.
              Inspectors continue to find money, cigarettes, dirty or contaminated nail files,
              wooden items, guns, socks, shoes etc in dry storage compartments. Protection is
              immediately compromised by placing anything in dry storage except disinfected
              items!! Why go to the trouble and expense of disinfecting tools only to
              contaminate them prior to use. Clients know where the comb or brush comes
              from. We should be well informed and provide assurance to each and every client
              that they are being properly protected. The average person is very concerned
              about new and medically troubling disease and contamination. Be responsible!!
          f. Electrical equipment care and disinfection. All removable parts such as drill bits
              and clipper guards must be removed and properly disinfected then stored in a
              proper dry storage until the next use. Non removable parts should be cleaned,
              dust and debris removed and then sprayed with a disinfectant.
          g. Nitrile gloves provide the best protection because vinyl and latex gloves are
              permeable to many chemicals found in the salon and should not be used.
 II. Industry Safety Issues:
          a. Non working machines that are not within specifications should be removed from
              the service location. General check ups of all equipment should be routine to
              determine if its performance is within specifications.
          b. Physical facilities including all structural parts must be kept safe. General
              cleanliness, and risk management is be required. Items needing a plan for routine
              checks are electrical wiring, properly coded plumbing, public evacuation system,
              lighting, counters, flooring and machines.
          c. Good air quality requires a smoke free environment. Attention is given to fumes
              and smells associated with the industry when in fact few incidents of air quality
              concerns have been determined to be as dangerous to the public as smoking. This
              applies to both users and exposure to second hand smoke. Salons must be smoke
              free to maintain the public health. Many chemicals used in the salon are also
              flammable.

                Dust masks only impair the ingestion of dust and particles. While recommended
for individuals with                    respiratory conditions masks are ineffective against the
inhalation of vapors and transmitted diseases such as                  colds, and flu. Fans, central
air conditioning, exhaust tables, and any other exhaustive methods supersede the
        effectiveness of masks.
            d. Animals in salons. Due to the rehabilitative findings associated by the presence
                of pets with patients, especially in nursing homes and with the elderly, the
                regulations prohibiting their presence in salons is being challenged. While the
                presence of animals seems harmless there are serious concerns for both the
                general public as well as for the animals. Service animals are a necessary
                exception but the client should be apprised of concerns for the animal.
                     i. There is a long list of documented diseases transferred from animals to
                        humans. Check with your local Health departments for a list.
                    ii. The chemicals used in salons may have serious consequence to the
                        animals. Millions are spent yearly to prevent animal testing of products in




                                                 49
                      the beauty industry. It is inconsistent to protect animals from testing then
                      allow their presence in salons where the same chemicals are used.
                 iii. Humans have a high allergic intolerance to animals in increasingly high
                      numbers making subjecting them to animals inappropriate, complacent,
                      and irresponsible. It is not appropriate for decisions about allergies,
                      including diagnosis, care and treatment to be performed in a salon.
                 iv. General obstruction caused by animals being under feet is a safety
                      concern. Animals move quickly and unexpectedly. Their behavior can
                      also be unpredictable given circumstances which may not be within the
                      owner’s control, especially if the owner or manager is involved in
                      providing salon services using shears and chemicals. Accidents, falls,
                      scratches, as well as general cleanliness are benefited by preventing
                      animals in the salons.
           e. Appropriate clothing in the industry must be revisited. In the early 80’s the
              perception was that proper clothing was not important for the protection of the
              public and most regulators eliminated the requirements for uniforms and other
              clothing requirements except shoes. Now we know that correct clothing is
              becoming more and more important as follows:
                          1. Minimizing skin exposure by protective good fitting clothing is
                              very important when mixing chemicals and especially during
                              disinfectant procedures including treatment tubs both circulating
                              and non circulating.
                          2. Arm and leg coverings prevent over exposure to ingredients.
                              Clothing should not be to loose when mixing to avoid damage by
                              spills, yet not to tight to insufficiently protect the skin and body.
                          3. Close contact to client’s skin is also a reason to protect the
                              professionals by requiring protective clothing.
                          4. Smocks are now being required by some examination sites to
                              promote protection and avoid accidents.
                          5. Boards should re visit the issue of protective clothing.

III. Scope of practice parameters including the use of machines as well as chemicals.
     Infection Control and Safety issues relative to today’s practice and sizeable interest by both
     the industry and the public demand a review of these issues in the following ways.
           a. Laws and Rules –When reviewing scope of practice it is important to look back
               to when the law or rule was implemented, determine what the intent was at that
               time, and determine its relativity to the practices performed today before
               determining the law does not allow a practice.
                   i.   Statutes commonly referred to as laws: We tend to look at the
                        differences demanded in the Industry today that were not demanded
                        when the law was written therefore concluding there is no provisions for
                        change. Review ever changing Science and ever increasing technology.
                        New practice may not be in conflict with the law but we tend to review
                        the law based on our history of understanding rather than with an open
                        view of allowances that may be already present if studied.




                                                 50
                 ii.    Code or Rules: Can a rule (or code) be written or revised to
                        accommodate a new practice without changing the law? Often Laws are
                        interpreted based on written rules. Rules may be a mechanism to update
                        industry decisions and practice without a change in the laws.
                iii. Most state regulatory laws and rules to do not contain a provision for
                        Science and Research. This may be a needed implementation to
                        accommodate and encourage such presence in each state.
          b. Curriculum standards – Due to practice changes over time many states have
             eliminated “light therapies” from licensure curriculums. It is recommended that
             the therapies be re introduced including introduction to laser light therapies
             regardless of whether the state will allow or disallow laser practices by
             aestheticians or cosmetologists. Basic knowledge is required in order to do Pre
             and follow up services for clients who choose laser therapies.
          c. Education beyond licensing/postgraduate oversight/ two tier licensing – Except
             for required continuing education as a pre requisite for license renewals most
             states do not have oversight of post graduate education which stifles professional
             development. It has been recommended by most labor representatives for many
             years that a person should be allowed to practice what they are trained to provide.
             Most nursing regulations include oversight of post graduate education which
             makes provisions for specific advanced or professional development beyond the
             basic entry level license. Merit is apparent by provisions that promote
             professional development through education. This would add practice capabilities
             beyond basic licensure. It is also seen as a substitute for “two tier” licensing as
             well as other practices of specialization.
          d. Licensing fracturing or limited licensing – Initially cosmetology boards offered
             only a cosmetology license which included esthetics and nail technology. Now
             many specialty licenses have made their way into current regulations. The
             development of a “Waxing only” examination indicates there is significant
             interest in other types of specialization.
          e. Cross over Credit from one license category to another - Another item of interest
             and exploration coming from Arizona includes accepting credit’s or hours
             obtained for like curriculums similar to procedures used by jr. colleges, colleges
             and universities. Examples of like curriculum requirements are Infection Control,
             anatomy, and basic massage. As curriculums are studied with this in mind more
             and more areas of like requirements are found therefore individuals who choose to
             take a second license course of study should be credited with like classes, hours,
             or credits..
IV. Pandemic/preparedness/continuity/professional needs and liabilities. Board offices have
    the responsible of keeping off site storage capabilities for licensing records. Agencies are
    becoming more and more paperless. Electronic files are easier to protect with daily back
    ups and off site storage as hard files are cumbersome and difficult to protect if a site is
    threatened by a natural disaster preventing continuation of business.

     Sharing data bases in times of emergency is extremely important. Cosmetology is
     considered an important resource in times of population stress due to the nature of the




                                               51
      services the profession provides. Access to professionals is critical. Value is demonstrated
      by access where needs are required.

      Because of the value of industry providers many state cosmetology regulators are
      partnering with state 211 initiatives.

Additional guidelines and references:

While 70% or greater solutions of Isopropanol or ethanol will disinfect tools and
instruments, these claims are not registered with the EPA." Logically, IPA or Ethanol
does kill bacteria, but logic doesn't always win in civil court. It may cause damage to
equipment, furniture and floor covering. Many states have prohibited the use of alcohol
as a disinfectant as well as many examination sites. .

Consult device manufacturer instructions prior to cleaning and disinfection.

Bleach is very unstable and efficacy is difficult to determine by regulators. It is very
corrosive and should not be used to disinfect small implements especially with fine
cutting edges. Counter tops and floors may be cleaned with bleach but check with the
manufacturer for guidelines regarding its use and the possible discoloration and other
side effects that it may cause.

NITRILE gloves are recommended because latex and vinyl gloves are permeable to many
chemicals in the salon and should not be used.

V. Cleaning and Disinfecting of circulating and non circulating tubs
   and spa’s for all industry modalities.
The recommended Cleaning and disinfecting standard for all circulating and non circulating tubs or spas are: (the
use of eye goggles and nitrile protective gloves are recommended and exposure of the client’s feet, or other skin
areas of the body to disinfectants should be avoided).

    7. After Each client or service,
    8. Drain the tub
    9. Clean the tub according to manufacturer’s instructions. Take special care to remove all
        film, especially at the water line. Rinse the Tub well.
    10. Fill the tub with water.
            a. Add appropriate disinfectant into the water according to the following:
                     i. AT Minimum, us an EPA registered, bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal,
                        and pseudomonacidal (Formulated for Hospitals) disinfectant that is


                                                        52
                      mixed and used according to the manufacturer’s directions, EXCEPT
                      TUBS THAT HAVE COME IN CONTACT WITH BLOOD OR
                      BODY FLUIDS
                  ii. If a Tub has COME IN CONTACT WITH BLOOD OR BODY
                      FLUIDS at minimum, an EPA registered disinfectant that is effective
                      against HIV –1 and human Hepatitis B Virus or Tuberculocidal that is
                      mixed and used according to the manufacturer’s directions shall be used.
          b. Allow the disinfectant to stand for non circulating tubs or to circulate for
              circulating tubs for the time specified according to the manufacturer’s
              instructions.
  11. At the end of the day remove all removable parts (filters, screens drains, jets, etc) Clean
      and disinfect the removable parts as follows:
          a. Scrub with a brush and soap or detergent until free from debris.
          b. Rinse
          c. Completely immerse in an EPA registered, bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal,
              and pseudomonacidal (Formulated for Hospitals) disinfectant that is mixed and
              used according to the manufacturer’s directions,
          d. Rinse.
          e. Air dry.
  12. Replace the disinfected parts into the tubs. (Drains, jets, etc) or, store them in a
      disinfected, dry, covered container that is isolated from contaminants.

     Salons are choosing to purchase extra drains and removable parts so the parts can
     immediately be changed out with pre disinfected parts saving time between clients. If so,
     any part which has COME IN CONTACT WITH BLOOD OR BODY FLUIDS must
     at minimum be disinfected with an EPA registered disinfectant that is effective against
     HIV –1 and human Hepatitis B Virus or Tuberculocidal that is mixed and used according
     to the manufacturer’s directions. Storage as in number 6 above.
