On this Periodic Review

Review Announcement

Pursuant to Executive Order 14 (2010) and §§ 2.2-4007.1 and 2.2-4017 of the Code of Virginia, the Board of Social Work is conducting a periodic review of:

18VAC140-20 Regulations Governing the Practice of Social Work


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 Board 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.

Comments may be submitted online to the Virginia Regulatory Town Hall at: http://www.townhall.virginia.gov/L/Forums.cfm.
Comments may also be sent to Elaine J. Yeatts, Agency Regulatory Coordinator, Department of Health Professions, 9960 Mayland Drive, Suite 300, Henrico, VA 23233 or faxed to (804) 527-4434 or emailed to elaine.yeatts@dhp.virginia.gov.
