Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that new ventilation requirements to protect workers and customers in nail salons statewide went into effect October 2016. Nail salon ventilation systems must meet the standard set by the 2015 International Mechanical Code, which contains specific ventilation requirements for nail salons and any other businesses that provide nail services, such as hair salons.
All businesses offering nail services must provide ventilation to capture and exhaust harmful contaminates, fumes and particles, away from clients and workers.
