NEHA April 2024 Journal of Environmental Health


The model code was developed over 2 years through a public- facing, research-based process with two public comment periods and collaboration with 35 experts from public health and the body art industry. The code is ready to be used in any community to adopt and enforce body art code in their jurisdiction. The BAMC was first released by NEHA in 1998 and subse- quently updated in 2019 and 2024. It is now updated every 3 years. Along with the code, NEHA has also developed job aids, training, and policy statements to support jurisdictions. The updated BAMC Annex, which includes the scientific rationale for the code, will be available this summer.
