Major Rules Overhaul: The Major Rules Overhaul is now complete. The new rules will take effect September 13, 2016. Please see the newly adopted rule changes that will affect all licensees. In early August, the BCE will release informational bulletins with highlights of these rule changes. In September, a complete version of the rules (including all changes and current rules still in effect) will be released. The BCE will also be hosting a series of Town Hall Meetings to discuss these rule changes.
Mobile Salons: We now have a working draft of possible rules for mobile salons.
Advanced Practice Esthetics: In 2018, the Board can begin issuing advanced practice esthetician licenses, advanced practice esthetician salon manager licenses, and advanced practice salon licenses. The Board is beginning to think about what the rules for training, grandfathering, testing, licensing, and operation should be for the licenses. The Request for Comments explains this, and tells you how to send in your ideas.
