Notice of Proposed Rule
DAR File No.: 38031
Filed: 09/30/2013 10:58:30 AM
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
H.B. 270 which was passed during the 2013 General Legislative Session of the Legislature requires the Division to define the term "research facility" in Subsection 58-37f-301(2)(d)(ii)(D). Designation as a research facility as defined is one of the requirements necessary for an individual conducting scientific studies in conjunction with the Department of Health to access information from the Controlled Substance Database (CSD) or from other state or federal prescription monitoring programs by means of the CSD.
Summary of the rule or change:
The definition of "research facility" in Subsection R156-37f-102(6) is consistent with the definition to be used in a proposed revision of the Pharmacy Practice Act Rule, Subsection R156-17b-102(42). Although loosely defined in this rule, when combined with the other requirements of this section, effectively limits access to CSD information to researchers affiliated with the Department of Health and whose scientific studies have been approved by an institutional review board.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Subsection 58-37f-301(1)
- Subsection 58-1-106(1)(a)
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
The Division will incur minimal costs of approximately $50 to print and distribute the rule once the proposed amendments are made effective. Any costs incurred will be absorbed in the Division's current budget. Research conducted under agreements with the Department of Health may increase as a result of this legislation which may increase the workloads of various state agencies that are conducting research with the Department of Health as research collaborator.
The proposed amendment only applies to research facilities working in conjunction with the Utah Department of Health and as a result, the amendment does not apply to local governments.
The proposed amendment only applies to research facilities working in conjunction with the Utah Department of Health. Research facilities working in conjunction with the Utah Department of Health may qualify as a small business, but the Division does not anticipate any costs as a result of this proposed rule filing beyond those considered in the fiscal note for H.B. 270 (2013).
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
The proposed amendment only applies to research facilities working in conjunction with the Utah Department of Health. The Division does not anticipate any costs as a result of this proposed rule filing beyond those considered in the fiscal note for H.B. 270 (2013).
Compliance costs for affected persons:
State agencies and the Utah Department of Health may experience increased research activity as a result of this amendment and the provisions in H.B. 270 (2013). However, the Division is unable to quantify state agency costs that may be associated with this increased research activity.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
This rule filing responds to H.B. 270 (2013) which requires that the term "research facility" be defined. No fiscal impact to businesses is anticipated beyond that contemplated by the Legislature in determining to pass the bill.
