Board members will address the issue of change #8 of the KKK-A-1822F that was issued July 1, 2015 that affects the cot restraint systems for ambulances. On November 30th the Ambulance Committee would develop wording for a new rule and forward to the Board that would replace the old rule. This new rule would require the standard promulgation process that would be expected to be placed into effect between July 1 and November 2016.

The following is a POSSIBLE timeline provided the new rule is approved by the AG’s office:

  • Rule signed in January would allow 180 day waiver on change #8
    • the waiver would be effective for ambulances with a manufacture date within the 180 days
  • New rule promulgated between July 1, 2016 and November 2016
