The Board has proposed numerous revisions to the rules and regulations. A number of revisions implement amendments to the Board's licensing law, Chapter 1 of Title 24 of the Delaware Code, including the addition of the practice privilege set forth at 24 Del.C. §108. In addition, the amendments set forth the licensure requirements that will go into effect on August 1, 2012.
Further, specific course requirements for licensure are revised. There are various amendments to the Rules pertaining to continuing professional education. Specifically, the proposed amendments will expressly give the Board authority to sanction licensees who do not comply with continuing professional education requirements.

The Board will consider promulgating the proposed rules and regulations at its regularly scheduled meeting following the public hearing.
