Continuing Education Program Sponsors
[29 Pa.B. 1613]
Under Executive Order 1996-1 (relating to regulatory review and promulgation), the State Board of Accountancy is soliciting preliminary input, prior to publication of proposed rulemaking, on draft amendments to its regulations relating to continuing education program sponsors.
The draft amendments would set forth new requirements for program sponsors effective May 1, 2000. The new requirements would enhance program sponsor standards and responsibilities, provide for onsite and offsite review of program sponsor offerings, clarify the grounds for withdrawal of program sponsor approval and establish fees for initial program sponsor approval and biennial renewal of approval. Currently approved program sponsors desiring to offer continuing education to certified public accountants and public accountants after April 30, 2000, would be required to apply for re-approval under the new requirements.
Currently approved and prospective program sponsors are invited to submit preliminary input on the draft amendments no later than April 30, 1999. Copies of the draft amendments may be obtained by writing or telephoning Steven Wennberg, Counsel, State Board of Accountancy, P. O. Box 2649, Harrisburg, PA 17105-2649, (717) 783-7200 and fax (717) 787-0251.
