(a) Registration. A sponsoring entity that wishes to provide, or arrange for the provision of, respiratory care services at a sponsored event under section 901 of the B&P shall register with the board not later than 90 calendar days prior to the date on which the sponsored event is scheduled to begin. A sponsoring entity shall register with the board by submitting to the board a completed “Registration of Sponsoring Entity under Business & Professions Code Section 901,” Form 901-A (DCA/2016 - revised), which is hereby incorporated by reference.
(b) Determination of Completeness of Form. The board may, by resolution, delegate to the Department of Consumer Affairs the authority to receive and process “Registration of Sponsoring Entity under Business & Professions Code Section 901,” Form 901-A (DCA/2016 - revised) on behalf of the board. The board or its delegatee shall inform the sponsoring entity in writing within 15 calendar days of receipt of the form 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 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 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 years after the date on which a sponsored event ended. The records may be maintained in either paper or electronic form. The sponsoring entity shall notify the board at the time of registration as to the form in which it will maintain the records. In addition, the sponsoring entity shall keep a copy of all records required by section 901(g) of the B&P 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) A sponsoring entity shall place a notice visible to patients at every station where patients are being seen by a respiratory care practitioner. The notice shall be in at least 48-point type in Arial font and shall include the following statement and information:
Respiratory Care Practitioners providing respiratory care services at this health fair are either licensed and regulated by the Respiratory Care Board of California or hold a current valid license from another state and have been authorized to provide respiratory care services in California only at this specific health fair.
