Governor Jack Markell signs the Polysomnography Licensure Bill into Law.

September 12, 2012

Delaware’s Governor Jack Markell signed the Polysomnographic Licensure Bill into Law.This law is the result of the Delaware Sleep Society’s efforts over the last few years and will ensure patients have access to quality care by qualified polysomnographers.

The law will require polysomnographers to be licensed by July 1, 2014. In the interim, the State of Delaware will create an Advisory Council to the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline to oversee the licensure of polysomnographers. Notice will be issued when polysomnographers may begin applying for a license.
