TO DISAPPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL, RELATING TO THE PRACTICE OF SELLING AND FITTING HEARING AIDS, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 2927, PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 1, CHAPTER 23, TITLE 1 OF THE 1976 CODE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the Department of Health and Environmental Control, relating to The Practice of Selling and Fitting Hearing Aids, designated as Regulation Document Number 2927, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are disapproved.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
S.C. Code Section 1-23-120 directs that staff of State agencies review their regulations every five years and update them if necessary. R.61-3, The Practice of Selling and Fitting Hearing Aids, was last amended January 22, 1988. Since then there have been certain guidelines, directives, interpretations, policies, and changes in applicable laws, and other considerations that have evolved from DHEC inspections/provider input through the years. This amendment updates the regulation and includes a title change from The Practice of Selling and Fitting Hearing Aids, to The Practice of Specializing in Hearing Aids.
