In the past, minutes had to be submitted every year, and whenever there was a change in protocols. Effective May 6, 2013, an amendment to Rule 64B8-35.002, FCC requires that minutes be filed within 30 days of the renewal of the NRA licence and for any amendments, including the closing of the protocol. This amendment makes the rule in line with the care board`s requirements for protocols. The doctor and the RNA must keep a copy of the protocol for at least four years.
