NEWARK – The Board of Respiratory Care has issued a proposal to readopt its regulations with amendments.

Rules regulating the licensure and practice of respiratory care practitioners are scheduled to expire on August 31, 2022, pursuant to Executive Order No. 66 (1978) and P.L. 2011, c.45 (N.J.S.A. 52:14B-5.1).  The Board undertook a thorough review of the rules in N.J.A.C. 13:44F to identify and remove any unnecessary or unreasonable rules and to clarify existing provisions. The Board believes that the rules proposed for readoption, as amended, are necessary, reasonable, understandable, and responsive to the purposes for which they were promulgated.

The proposed amendments to the rules would delete a provision that prohibits licensees from authorizing assistants to provide direct patient care; reduce the fee for duplicate licenses; require licensees to provide the Board with their business addresses; and recognize additional entities which may offer an advanced credentialing examination for continuing education credit.

The proposed readoption with amendments, and information on how to submit a comment by June 3, 2022, can be viewed here.
