Tissue Bank Licensing Bill

You may all have heard that AB995, the Tissue Bank Licensing Bill, was signed into the law. This bill clarifies the licensing requirements for tissue banks. Until now, these regulations could have also potentially affected DPMs. In order to maintain compliance, DPMs would have to adhere to certain documentation requirements as well as pay the licensing fees. An amendment was included in the current bill which includes an exception for certain biological tissue substitutes in relevant circumstances to our members.
