    Legal requirement to patch test wax 24 hours before an appointment?

    It’s not about whether it’s a legal requirement or not but whether it’s a requirement of your insurance. If they state you need to then you’ll have to do it. Or your insurance may state that you have to follow manufacturers instructions, so if they state 24 hour testing then you’ll have to it.
