Additional information

We previously ran a consultation on the principles for establishing a mandatory licensing scheme for the named special procedures.

Regulations and statutory guidance have been drafted following that consultation. We invite you to comment on these drafts in this consultation. After this, we will start the law making process in the Senedd.

Part 4 of the Public Health (Wales) Act 2017 sets out the legal framework. The intention is to commence part 4 of the act and put in place the licensing scheme as a whole.

This consultation will run for 8 weeks.
