On July 20, 2012, the provisions of HB 1 and various emergency regulations issued pursuant to that statute become effective.  Licensees should be re-assured that the standards for prescribing controlled substances are the same standards employed by the Board for the past 20 years.

While licensees must comply with the provisions of HB 1 from July 20 forward, the Board recognizes that the emergency regulations include some new requirements.  We want to assure licensees that the Board does not intend to impose disciplinary sanctions for an isolated and simple failure to comply with one of the new requirements during the immediate period following filing of the emergency regulations.

It is important that each licensee become familiar with and come into compliance with the various requirements of the emergency regulations, which have been posted on this website, as quickly as possible.  The Board expects all licensees to be in full compliance with each of the new requirements by October 1, 2012.
