Proposed Regulations

Psychological Associates (2016 Sunset Conforming Changes)

Amends Sections 1391.1, 1391.2, 1391.5, 1391.6, 1391.8, 1391.10, 1391.11, 1391.12, and 1392.1 of Title 16 of the California Code of Regulations

This regulation changes the current regulatory language regarding registration as, and supervision of, a registered psychological associate, as current regulatory language conflicts with amended statutory language of BPC sections 2913 and 2987, pursuant to Senate Bill 1193 (SB 1193) (Hill, Chapter 484, Statutes of 2016), Senate Bill 547 (SB 547) (Hill, Chapter 429, Statutes of 2017), and Senate Bill 801 (SB 801) (Archuleta, Chapter 647, Statutes of 2021).


Fees

Amends Sections 1392 and 1392.1 of Title 16 of the California Code of Regulations

This regulatory change increases application and renewal fees to their statutory maximum amounts and raises the California Psychology Law and Ethics Examination (CPLEE) fee to the actual cost the Board incurs to create and administer the exam.


Retired License Status

Adds Section 1381.10, and amends Sections 1392 and 1397.69 of Title 16 of the California Code of Regulations.

This proposal establishes a retired license status for psychologists.


Continuing Professional Development

Amends Sections 1381.9, 1397.60, 1397.61, 1397.62, and 1397.67 of Title 16 of the California Code of Regulations

This proposal conforms the current traditional continuing education model to be in line with the statutory structure of continuing professional development as outlined in Business and Profession Codes Section 2915. This model allows for an assortment of professional activities to meet the 36 hour requirement for purposes of license renewal.


Standards of Practice for Telehealth

Adds Sections 1396.8 of Title 16 of the California Code of Regulations

This proposal establishes standards of practice for providing services via telehealth by licensed California psychologists and psychology trainees.


Substantial Relationship Criteria, Rehabilitation Criteria for Denials and Reinstatements, Rehabilitation Criteria for Suspensions and Revocations

Amends Sections 1394, 1395, 1395.1 of Title 16 of the California Code of Regulations

This proposal brings the Board into compliance with the upcoming changes to the law and, to the extent possible, maintains adequate consumer protections by ensuring Board licensees are fit to practice independently with potentially vulnerable consumer populations.
