Standards of Practice not authorized by statute

§ 54.1-2301 provides specific statutory authority related to creating regulations for licensure. The statutory authority does not expressly authorize the Board to adopt regulations pertaining to “Standards of Practice and Conduct” (Part IX). Therefore, all the elements of Part IX exceed the Board's statutory authority.
