    RULE NO.:RULE TITLE:

    61K1-3.018Emergency Equipment; Other Equipment and Services

    PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The Commission proposes to promulgate and adopt the new rule to set forth the obligations for professional licenses licensed under Chapter 458, F.S., and by moving the requirements to a chapter designated strictly for professional licensees and updating the rule to match industry standards.

    SUMMARY: The rule amendment will set forth the requirements for emergency equipment and services.

    SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS AND LEGISLATIVE RATIFICATION: The Agency has determined that this will not have an adverse impact on small business or likely increase directly or indirectly regulatory costs in excess of $200,000 in the aggregate within one year after the implementation of the rule. A SERC has been prepared by the Agency.

    . The agency has determined that the proposed rule is not expected to require legislative ratification based on the statement of estimated regulatory costs. The information expressly relied upon and described herein:

    • The rule sets the emergency equipment and other equipment and service requirements and will not adversely impact economic growth, private-sector job creation or employment, or private-sector ratification.

    • The rule will likely not raise the price of goods or services provided.

    • The rule will not likely increase regulatory costs, including any transactional costs.

    • The number of people required to comply with the rule will be approximately 27 promoters.

    • The department intends to implement the proposed rule within its current workload, with existing staff.

    • The costs of implementing the rule will affect the department only.

    • Additional costs imposed on promoters by this rule will include the cost to hire paramedics and two ringside physicians to staff each professional event.

    The rule will not require ratification by the Legislature because all costs of the rule are required by the statute. No person or interested party submitted additional information regarding the economic impact at that time.

    The Agency has determined that the proposed rule is not expected to require legislative ratification based on the statement of estimated regulatory costs or if no SERC is required, the information expressly relied upon and described herein: The rule will not require ratification by the Legislature because all costs of the rule are required by the statute.

    Any person who wishes to provide information regarding a statement of estimated regulatory costs, or provide a proposal for a lower cost regulatory alternative must do so in writing within 21 days of this notice.
