NC Electrolysis Examiners Propose Changes to Physician Supervision

The North Carolina Board of Electrolysis Examiners have filed proposed rules to take effect on August 1, 2015. Among other regulations, these proposed rules would make changes to the requirements for physician supervision of electrolysis providers.

PUBLIC HEARING: Sunday, April 26, 2015, 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Trinity Oaks, 728 Klumac Road, Salisbury, NC 28144

The North Carolina Board of Electrolysis Examiners will accept public comment regarding proposed rules changes found here. The rule change proposes to clarify provisions regarding applications for licensure, school and instructor certifications, fee increases, continuing education, and agreements with Supervisory Physicians.

New language would specify that agreements with supervising physicians include an acknowledgement that current guidance from the North Carolina Medical Board with respect to laser hair removal and laser surgery by non-physicians will be observed and monitored. The new rules would also require attestation that the supervising physician will be readily available and able to respond quickly to patient emergencies and questions by those performing electrolysis procedures under the physician’s supervision.

Comments can be directed to:

Susan Magas, 2 Centerview Drive, Suite 60, Greensboro, NC 27407, phone (336) 856-1010, or ncbeexam@att.net.

Comment period ends: June 1, 2015
