OHA Regulations Advisory Committee

The OHA has a process for revising the regulations surrounding the Healthcare Interpreting law. The current regulations have to be updated to account for changes in the law and possibly for changes in the industry since the regulations were written. The law is the basic skeleton, but the implementation is based on the regulations that are written in this next stage. Your participation is important.

The current regulations can be found at this link:
