In addition to the Phase 3 requirements set to be effective November 28, 2019, there are also uncertainties regarding recent proposed changes in both the Federal and State regulatory requirements which may delay a portion of these. To assist our members in preparing for this changes, we’ve assembled a team of high-level content experts; professionals who have first-hand knowledge of the regulatory revisions.
