Petition for Waiver

The Petition for Waiver form is not to be used for requesting an exemption from the mandate for electronic transmission of prescriptions.  Please submit the Petition for Exemption form found on the webpage for the Mandate for Electronic Transmission of Prescriptions.

The Board may grant a waiver from all or part of a rule. No waiver may be granted from a requirement that is imposed by statute. Any waiver must be consistent with state and federal statutes. The procedures for waiver of Board rules are found in 657—Chapter 34.

The decision on whether the circumstances identified in the petition justify the granting of a waiver shall be made at the discretion of the Board upon consideration of all relevant factors. The petitioner shall assume the burden of persuasion when a petition is filed for waiver from a Board rule. A petition for waiver shall be submitted in writing to the Board. The Petition for Waiver form is available as an online form and will be submitted directly to Board staff after completion.

The cutoff for inclusion on the Board's agenda is two weeks prior to a scheduled board meeting. Requests received after the cutoff will have to wait for the following Board meeting (i.e. deadline for March 12 meeting is February 27; a request received on February 28 would not go before the Board until the next meeting).
