Proposed Rules

The Ohio Revised Code grants rule-making authority to the Ohio Speech and Hearing Professionals Board (Board) to adopt new rules, review, amend and rescind current rules.  Rules become part of the Ohio Administrative Code, and assist the Board in executing its duty to carry out provisions of the Ohio Revised Code.

The Board is proposing to adopt, amend, and rescind the following rules.  The Board has submitted these these rules, along with the Business Impact Analysis with the Common Sense Initiatives Office.  If you wish to comment on the proposed rule actions, please reply to the Ohio Speech and Hearing Professionals Board at Gregg.Thornton@shp.ohio.gov AND copy your email to the Common Sense Initiatives Office at CSIPublicComments@governor.ohio.gov.  Comments on the proposed rule changes will be accepted until close of business on Friday, April 19, 2019.  A formal rules hearing for the proposed rule actions is scheduled for June 27, 2019 at 10:30 a.m., 77 South High Street, 31st Floor – Board Room; Columbus, OH 43215.
