|Agency Decision Summary||
The request is to amend regulations relating to the posting of a dentist’s registration from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) was considered by the Board at its meeting on September 16, 2016. Board members were also given copies of public comment on the petition.
The Board decided to initiate rulemaking to amend the requirement for posting of a dentist’s DEA registration. The amendment will require a dentist to maintain a copy of the DEA registration in a readily retrievable manner at each practice location. While the amendment will be submitted as a \"fast-track” action, it is likely that the regulatory process will take several months before it becomes final. The Board will notify licensees when the amended regulation is effective.
