Single License Update

Update: The Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Advisory Committee met on January 21, 2021.  During the meeting it was reported that the regulation implementing the Audiology Single Law is moving along in the administrative review process.  It was moved out of the Director’s Office in Consumer Affairs on January 12 and is now in regulatory review.

----

The Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Advisory Committee met on December 10, 2020. The good news that was discussed at the meeting is that the Committee received only two comments; both of which were positive and in support. This means that there will not be any changes or delays. However, at the meeting the regulatory analyst for the Committee indicated that the language needs to be reviewed yet again by the Division of Consumer Affairs, the Office of Administrative Law, the Attorney General’s office and Governor’s Counsel. This review will require many attorneys to be involved in this process as it proceeds to publication for final adoption. Unfortunately the analyst indicated that this process will require a minimum of six months before the final rules are adopted and published in the New Jersey Register. Once published in the New Jersey Register audiologists will be authorized to dispense hearing aids without the additional hearing aid dispensing license.

Given this information, the New Jersey Academy of Audiology recommends that those audiologists who dispense hearing aids renew their hearing aid dispenser license before the expiration date of the license.
