Laws and Rules


Proposed Rules

The Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board is establishing in rule the current process that the Board utilizes dubbed the "Safe Haven Program" in rule 4741-1-25 of the Ohio Administrative Code. The rule is modified to eliminate the stigma of mental health disorders and substance use disorders by the fear of losing the license to practice veterinary medicine. The Board believes that early intervention minimizes the potential for harm to the patient or the licensee.

The BIA and draft rule are enclosed. Comments are due no later than January 31, 2023. Please email AND with any concerns or recommended language for this rule.
