Government Relations

As part of our service to the industry and the tanning public, the Indoor Tanning Association regularly follows legislative developments across the country that potentially have a bearing on indoor tanning activities. We encourage our members to look out for legislative activity in their own states and let us know if you hear of something.

At the Federal Level, the ITA actively lobbies against legislation that would place unfair restrictions on the industry. If you would like to get involved, contact the ITA at 703 336-3632 or email us at
