Selling sex is legal under certain restrictive conditions, a) if you are working totally independently as a private worker (cannot share space with another sex worker) or b) working in a licensed brothel. All other forms of sex work are illegal including street work
Brothels are regulated and must be licensed.
Legal duty to ensure workers in licensed brothels are STI free so in effect this creates de facto mandatory testing. Regular testing defined as every 3 months
No -restrictions are very onerous
No - not full decriminalisation
