New Calif code re: metal tools for pedicure...
#1
says
"
Section 7320.1 Allows Metal Tools to Smooth and Massage
(credo blades and rasps are still illegal)
When providing a manicure or pedicure, no metal instruments shall be used except those metal instruments necessary for the cutting, trimming, manicuring, or pedicuring of nails or cuticles or for the smoothing and massaging of the hands and
feet."

Anyone have any idea what it is they are now allowing?
I loved checci tools.... and thought them preferable because, unlike pumice, they can be sanitized before use!
are they allowed now or will they tell me they are like a credo though not a credo?

Hi Wendy,

As far as I know, we are not allowed to use the Checci type of files during a pedicure. I use a metal foot file, but with replaceable sticky sandpaper that gets removed after use on one client. (sorry - having a brain fart and can't think of what they are called).

I wish we could use them - they work great and definitely can be santized.

Hopefully Jaime Schraebeck will see your post. She can answer all your stateboard questions. If she doesn't see this - google her and send her an email. She will get back with you, she's very helpful!!

Thanks, Sherrie.

After a review of available products and much discussion, the BBC determined that callus smoothers (like the Checi) are acceptable; metal tools that cut calluses (graters, rasps, credos, razor blades, etc.) are not.

Forgive me for being ignorant but why aren't callus cutters acceptable?

Thanks for the update Jaime! I didn't know we could use the Checci type files - so happy to hear that!

I visit the BBC website on occasion but there is so much information, it's hard for me to get through all of it and find updates and such. Is there an easier way to navigate the website or get updates without having to go through all the information there?

I am not sure where you are located, your profile does not say. In many of the US states, the regulations specifically state callus blades may not be used. In the remaining states, there is wording in the law that says something to the effect of "practicing outside the scope".

Callus blades can be "invasive" - you can cut people with them. We are not allowed by law, in any state to do any procedure that is invasive. An esthetician may do SOME invasive procedures, but again they are limited by law.

Hi...I know for a fact that Chechi is illegal in CA. I was told by an inspector that if he saw me using one he would take my license right there and then.

Inspectors don't make the rules, and some are misinformed. Not to worry because inspectors do not issue fines. Their inspection reports are reviewed by BBC staff to avoid "bogus" violations.

If you have any questions about how the rules are enforced in California, you should contact the Enforcement Manager, Heather Berg ([email protected]).

Furthermore, inspectors cannot take your license . . .if you only knew how hard it is to have a license revoked, even when it's deserved.
