NAILS State-by-State Guide to Disinfection Regulations

Required disinfection process, handling of disposable items, and handling of electric file accessories for all 50 U.S. states

Each state in the union has its own regulations regarding disinfection and the handling of disposable items and electric file accessories. While the rules don’t vary substantially from state, there are nuances that you need to be aware of.

The information in this chart was compiled by a combination of direct input from state boards and searching through the rules and regulations online for each of the boards. When a state did not provide specific regulations, we’ve left the area blank. If your state has no guidelines, we recommend that you follow the Salon Safety Guidelines for Nail Technicians.
