§ 2557.1. Sponsoring Entity Registration and Recordkeeping Requirements.
(a) Registration. A sponsoring entity that wishes to provide, or arrange for the provision of, health care services at a sponsored event under Section 901 of the Code shall register with the Board not later than ninety (90) calendar days prior to the date on which the sponsored event is scheduled to begin. A sponsored entity shall register with the Board by submitting to the Board a completed Sponsoring Entity Application for Registration For Free Health Care Event, Form 901-A (3/23/12), which is hereby incorporated by reference.
(b) Determination of Completeness of Form. The Board may, by resolution, delegate to its Executive Officer or the Department of Consumer Affairs the authority to receive and process Form 901-A (3/23/12) on behalf of the Board. The Board or its delegatee shall inform the sponsoring entity within fifteen (15) calendar days of receipt of Form 901-A (3/23/12), in writing, that the form is either complete and the sponsoring entity is registered or that the form is deficient and what specific information or documentation is required to complete the form and be registered. The Board or its delegatee shall reject the registration if all of the identified deficiencies have not been corrected at least thirty (30) days prior to the commencement of the sponsored event.
(c) Recordkeeping Requirements. Regardless of where it is located, a sponsoring entity shall maintain, at a physical location in California, a copy of all records required by Section 901 of the Code as well as a copy of the authorization for participation issued by the Board to an out-of-state practitioner. The sponsoring entity shall maintain these records for a period of at least five (5) years after the date on which a sponsored event ended. The records may be maintained in either paper or electronic form. In addition, the sponsoring entity shall keep a copy of all records required by Section 901(g) of the Code at the physical location of the sponsored event until that event has ended. These records shall be available for inspection and copying during the operating hours of the sponsored event upon request of any representative of the Board.
(d) Requirement for Prior Board Approval of Out-of-State Practitioner. A sponsoring entity shall not permit an out-of-state practitioner to participate in a sponsored event unless and until the sponsored entity has received written approval of such practitioner from the Board.
(e) Report. Within fifteen (15) calendar days after a sponsored event has concluded, the sponsoring entity shall file a report with the Board summarizing the details of the sponsored event. This report may be in a form of the sponsoring entity's choosing, but shall include, at a minimum, the following information:
(1) The date(s) of the sponsored event;
(2) The location(s) of the sponsored event;
(3) The type(s) and general description of all health care services provided at the sponsored event; and
(4) A list of each out-of-state practitioner granted authorization pursuant to this Article who participated in the sponsored event, along with the license number of that practitioner.
