Review Announcement
Pursuant to Executive Order 14 (2010) and §§ 2.2-4007.1 and 2.2-4017 of the Code of Virginia, the Department of Health Professions is conducting a periodic review of:

18VAC76-10 Regulations Governing the Health Practitioners' Monitoring Program for the Department of Health Professions

18VAC76-20 Regulations Governing the Prescription Monitoring Program

18VAC76-40 Regulations Governing Emergency Contact Information


The review is part of the Governor’s Regulatory Reform Project with the goal of:
a. Repealing regulations that are unnecessary or no longer in use;
b. Reducing unnecessary regulatory burdens on individuals, businesses, and other regulated groups; and
c. Identifying statutes that require unnecessary or overly burdensome regulations.

Further, the Department is seeking comment on whether this regulation should be terminated, amended, or retained in its current form. Public comment is sought on the review of any issue relating to this regulation, including whether the regulation (i) is necessary for the protection of public health, safety, and welfare or for the economical performance of important governmental functions; (ii) minimizes the economic impact on small businesses in a manner consistent with the stated objectives of applicable law; and (iii) is clearly written and easily understandable.

The comment period begins November 5, 2012 and ends on December 5, 2012.
