Status
Objections Filed 10 or more objections have been filed (9/12/13)
 
Reason:
The Board of Health received 28 comments objecting to the fast-track process. Commenters expressed concern about the following topics: (1) whether adequate and enforceable standards would exist without 12VAC-615, including the ability of the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to enforce, by policy, technical and procedural requirements, roles and responsibilities, standards of practice, and other work product from licensees of the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR); (2) whether certain portions of 12VAC5-615 should be retained in other regulations administered by VDH or DPOR before rescinding, including ethical requirements, certain definitions (e.g., backlogs), and application requirements; and (3) whether VDH could implement a consistent, predictable, and enforceable program without 12VAC5-615; for example, VDH has different requirements between public and private sector licensees.
