CHARLOTTETOWN - The government of Prince Edward Island is set to regulate tanning for people under 18.

The provincial government issued guidelines in December, saying they were looking for 100 per cent compliance.

The province has the highest rate of melanoma in Canada.

A release says low levels of compliance with the guidelines led to Friday's announcement that government regulations are on the way.

A review and update of radiation safety regulations, including tanning, is scheduled for this summer and fall.
