Agenda Review and Approval:
The meeting was called to order at 2:30 pm by Chairman Ed Carson. The agenda was approved as read. The minutes for March 2012 were approved as submitted.
Product Approval Program Issues:
Product Approval Entities and Statistics Report (5/8/21012) for the 2010 code cycle were read into the record.

Rule 61G20-3.015 Equivalency of Standards – Update: Mo Madani provided an update on the progress of this rule. A workshop was held on March 18, 2012 with no comments. We are currently in the process of noticing “Notice of Rulemaking” with a hearing, if needed. The timeline for completing the rulemaking process is moving along as planned.
Status Update Regarding the Proposed Rule for Revocation: Mo Madani provided an update on this issue. The revocation language is on hold to allow for exploring of different options for review and consideration. Leslie Anderson-Adams is moving to another division and a new legal representative is coming on board. This will delay the rule process in order to bring the new council up to speed. Decisions need to be made whether or not to amend the rule or the statute. A report will be provided at the next meeting on the best approach.
Ted Berman and Associates Reports:
Products and entities were reviewed and approved. Recommendations were provided. DBPR approved products were made available on the agenda as required by rule and no comment was raised at the meeting regarding those products.
