Department of State terminates a number of Regulatory Waivers and Suspensions sooner than June 30, 2022

Last Updated: May 5, 2022

On March 30, 2022, Governor Wolf signed Senate Bill 1019, again extending regulatory waivers granted in response to the COVID-19 emergency. This action, now known as Act 14 of 2022, extends regulatory, statutes, rules, and regulations temporally waived by the Pa. Department of Health, the Pa. Department of State’s Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs (BPOA), and other state departments and agencies to June 30, 2022, unless terminated sooner by the authority that initially issued the waiver.

On May 4, 2022, the BPOA identified a number of waivers that are either no longer necessary or have already served their purpose in response to the disaster declaration but have not yet been formally rescinded or expired. Those waivers will expire on May 23, June 6, or June 20. An updated list of all the waivers issued by BPOA and their expiration dates can be found on BPOA’s website.

The Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) will continue to monitor the expiration of regulatory waivers and provide updates to members accordingly.
