DAR File No.: 42418
Filed: 12/21/2017 03:25:42 PM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Title 58, Chapter 37f, provides for the creation, purpose, and existence of a Controlled Substance Database. Subsection 58-1-106(1)(a) provides that the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (Division) may adopt and enforce rules to administer Title 58. Subsection 58-37f-301 provides that the Division shall make rules with respect to the Controlled Substance Database. This rule was enacted to clarify the provisions of Title 58, Chapter 37f.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

Since this rule was originally enacted in January 2013, the Division has only received one written comment. A letter dated 12/21/2015 from CVS Health /Lauren Berton was submitted in which they recommended a minor wording change to Subsection R156-37f-203(4)(a) as a result of a proposed rule filing in December 2015. The written comment was reviewed and considered by the Division, but no further proposed rule amendments were made as a result of the written comment.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

This rule should be continued as it provides information and clarification of requirements relating to the Controlled Substance Database.
