Rule Revisions for Licensing and Regulatory Affairs

2015-027 LR

Securities
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Corporations, Securities, & Commercial Licensing)

In 2008 the Uniform Securities Act, 1964 PA 264, was repealed and replaced with the Uniform Securities Act (2002), 2008 PA 551. The act requires the department to promulgate rules and this new rule set will meet that statutory requirement. The Uniform Securities Act (2002) was amended in 2013 by 2013 PA 264 to permit the Department to promulgate rules to implement the provisions of section 202a, and in 2014 by 2014 PA 355, to permit the Department to promulgate rules that the administrator considers necessary to administer Article 4a of the Uniform Securities Act.


2015-060 LR

Underground Storage Tank Regulations
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Bureau of Fire Services)

The current rules were promulgated in 1998 and updated in 2008 and 2012. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently revised the underground storage tank regulation and the state program approval regulation, which are the bases for Michigan’s underground storage tank rules. The federal regulations, which go into effect October 13, 2015, will update these regulations and will establish federal requirements that are similar to key portions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The amendments and additions to Michigan’s rules reflect changes in the EPA rules requirements.


2016-057 LR

Michigan Gas Safety Standards
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Public Service Commission)

In order for Michigan to maintain jurisdiction over gas pipeline facilities and transportation, the state must certify that it has adopted each applicable federal standard, or is taking steps to adopt that standard, 49 USC 60105(b)(2). Failure to adopt the updates to the federal standards will eventually lead to reduction or termination of federal funding to the state to carry out enforcement of these standards. In addition, failure to maintain local jurisdiction over pipeline regulation will mean that pipelines located in Michigan will be forced to submit to federal regulators located in Washington D.C. or other out-of-state locations. Thus, the primary purpose of these amendments is to adopt by reference current federal regulations governing gas safety along with updating certain other technical standards contained in the rules. The proposed amendments may also make minor changes to Michigan rules so that the language in these rules conforms more closely to the federal rules.


2017-001 LR

Construction Code – Part 8. Electrical Code Rules
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Bureau of Construction Codes)

Part 8 of the Construction Code currently adopts by reference the 2014 edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC), which establishes standards for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment. Part 8 also includes rules that amend the NEC to address electrical practices that are specific to Michigan. The 2017 version of the NEC, which is the most current edition, contains provisions relating to revised standards and new materials. The proposed rules will adopt by reference the 2017 edition of the NEC with amendments, deletions, and additions deemed necessary for use in Michigan.

The relicensure requirements have also been revised to require an applicant to establish that he or she is of good moral character, and if the license has been lapsed for 3 years or more, the applicant must submit to a criminal history check.

The relicensure requirements have also been revised to require an applicant to establish that he or she is of good moral character, and if the license has been lapsed for 3 years or more, the applicant must submit to a criminal history check. Further rule revisions have been made to provide for clarity.


2017-042 LR

Medical Marihuana Facilities
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation)

The Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA), 2016 PA 281, provides for the licensure and regulation of medical marihuana growers, processors, provisioning centers, secure transporters, and safety compliance facilities. Section 206 of the Act, MCL 333.27206, requires the Department, in consultation with the Medical Marihuana Licensing Board, to promulgate rules to implement, administer, and enforce the Act. This section also requires that the rules ensure the safety, security, and integrity of the operation of marihuana facilities.


2017-043 LR

Medical Marihuana Tracking
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation)

The Marihuana Tracking Act, 2016 PA 282 (MCL 333.27901 to 333.27904) requires the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) to establish a statewide monitoring system for use as an integrated marihuana tracking, inventory, and verification system.


2017-067 LR

Occupational Code - Renewals
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Bureau of Professional Licensing)

The Occupational Code Renewals establish the specific date that a license or registration renewal period begins or ends for occupations on a biennial renewal period. R 339.1003 – This rule sets forth expiration dates for certain occupations, including accountancy, which have a license or registration that expires on a 2-year cycle. The revision modifies the date of renewal for accountancy licenses to 2 years from July 31 instead of December 31. Further, R 339.2003(2) is being rescinded as the change in the renewal date to 7/31 makes this section duplicative.


2017-084 LR

(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , MIOSHA)

CS Part 14 Tunnels, Shafts, Caissons, and Cofferdams gives direction to employers and employees on protecting Michigan employees from health and safety hazards in the workplace when using tunnels, shafts, caissons, and cofferdams.

2017-091 LR

Technical Standards for Electric Service
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Public Service Commission)

These rules apply to electric utility service provided by utilities that are subject to the jurisdiction of the Public Service Commission. The rules are intended to promote safe and adequate electric service to the public, to provide standards for uniform and reasonable electric practices by utilities, and to encourage efficiency and safety. Changes to these rules are supported by the Commission and by regulated industry. Because the current rules have not been revised in more than a decade, the Commission believes it is important to update the technical standards for electric service to reflect the emerging technological advancements in the area of metering, metering equipment inspections, and tests. In addition, the Commission proposes removing references to obsolete equipment from the existing rules. The Commission also proposes to add a rule addressing cybersecurity and uniform reporting practices for the utilities. The Commission believes that a new cybersecurity rule is necessary because cybersecurity threats challenge the reliability, resiliency, and safety of the electric grid, and because utility spending to address cyber vulnerabilities can impact the bills that customers pay.

2017-101 LR

Licensing Health Facilities or Agencies
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Bureau of Community and Health Systems)

There are six rule sets for licensing health facilities and agencies. Although most of them have undergone periodic review and revision, it has been too long since a comprehensive review and revision was done to assure they comport with current practice standards, to harmonize them with current federal law and regulations, and to reflect the current organization of state licensing functions. Some of these rules are obsolete and there is a significant amount of duplication between rule sets. The purpose of promulgating a single new rule set for health facility licensing is to better protect the health, safety, and welfare of individuals receiving care and services in or from a health facility or agency, and to assure the medical accountability for reimbursed care provided by a certified health facility or agency participating in a federal or state health program. The new rule set will focus on core principles and standards of health facility licensing; fulfill statutory requirements; comport with current practice standards; harmonize with federal law and regulations; and, be free of redundant, obsolete, or unnecessary language. The new rule set will replace the following six rule sets.


2018-001 LR

Consumer Standards And Billing Practices For Electric And Gas Residential Service
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Public Service Commission)

These billing rules lay out the parameters and practices regulated utilities must follow in billing customers for electric and natural gas utility service. The rules concern applying for service, customer deposits, meter reading procedures, meter accuracy and errors, billing and payment standards, voluntary termination of service, complaint procedures, procedures for shutoff and restoration of service, energy assistance and shutoff protection programs, dispute resolution, and commission appeal procedures. The rules strike a balance between protecting consumers from discriminatory or predatory billing and service practices while at the same time safeguarding regulated utilities’ rights to receive payment for utility service rendered.


2018-002 LR

Code of Conduct
(Licensing and Regulatory Affairs , Public Service Commission)

“The commission shall establish a code of conduct that applies to all utilities. The code of conduct shall include, but is not limited to, measures to prevent cross-subsidization, preferential treatment, and, except as otherwise provided under this section, information sharing, between a utility's regulated electric, steam, or natural gas services and unregulated programs and services, whether those services are provided by the utility or the utility's affiliated entities. The code of conduct established under this section is also applicable to electric utilities and alternative electric suppliers consistent with sections 10 through 10cc.” Thus, the PSC is required by the new energy legislation to establish a code of conduct that will ensure that the unregulated affiliates, divisions, or departments of a regulated utility do not receive preferential treatment that could result in harm to the public interest by unduly restraining trade or competition in the unregulated market. In the absence of a code of conduct, a regulated utility could share, for example, assets, employees, facilities, and customer information with affiliates, divisions, or departments that are unregulated and that compete in the open market for customers, without sharing the same assets, employees, facilities, or customer information with other businesses offering the same service or program.

The proposed rule amendments are intended to address the new requirements set forth in Public Act 167 of 2017. Public Act 167 requires that the Bureau of Fire Services amend the current Health Facilities Fire Safety Rules to allow existing non-licensed home for the aged facilities to be reviewed and inspected to comply with the provisions of chapter 18 or 19 or chapter 32 or 33 of the National Fire Protection Association standard number 101.
