State Board of Podiatry
Regulation No. 16A-444
June 8, 2001

   We submit for consideration the following objections and recommendations regarding this regulation. Each objection or recommendation includes a reference to the criteria in the Regulatory Review Act (71 P. S. § 745.5a(h) and (i)) which have not been met. The State Board of Podiatry (Board) must respond to these Comments when it submits the final-form regulation. If the final-form regulation is not delivered by May 7, 2003, the regulation will be deemed withdrawn.

1.  Section 29.12.  Adoption of National Board Examination.--Clarity

   Subsection (a) uses the phrase ''National Board of Podiatric Medical Examiners.'' However, §§ 29.12(b) and 29.11 use the phrase ''National Board.'' The Board should consider defining National Board in § 29.1 (definitions) and use the phrase consistently in each section.

2.  Section 29.13(a).  Fees.--Clarity.

   Section 29.13(a) establishes a new fee for application for authorization to perform radiologic procedures. The last paragraph of section C of the Preamble states that the new fee is paid in advance for providing an authorization form after a person passes the radiology technician examination. Please explain the disposition of the advance fee if the applicant does not pass the examination and ultimately decides not to retake it. Is there a mechanism in place to provide a refund?
