Economic Impact Statement for K.A.R. 69-15-3
I. Summary of Proposed Regulation, Including Its Purpose.
K.A.R. 69-15-3 outlines the minimum requirements for becoming a licensed tattoo artist trainer, cosmetic tattoo artist trainer, basic body piercing trainer, or advanced body piercing trainer.
II. Reason(s) the Proposed Regulation is Required, Including Whether or Not the Regulation is Mandated by Federal Law.
This regulation is amended to include submission of a nonrefundable trainer license fee with application for licensure. Also, this regulation is amended to clarify the additional requirements to become an advanced body piercing trainer. This regulation is not mandated by federal law, and, therefore, the regulation does not exceed the requirements of federal law.
III. Anticipated Economic Impact upon the Kansas Board of Cosmetology.
The Board anticipates an increase in revenues resulting from the addition of the nonrefundable trainer license fee. This will be a financial relief for the Board, as applications for trainer licenses take designated office staff, time, and resources to process, verify, print and mail, which is not currently recouped by the Board by any revenue source. Office staff can spend several hours reviewing an initial trainer application to verify work history, completion of procedures, in-state or out-of-state licensure, and submission of training program. In addition to new applications for trainer licensure, the Board has approximately 60 approved trainers who are coming in and out of active status throughout the fiscal year.
IV. Anticipated Economic Impact upon Other Governmental Agencies.
The Board does not anticipate economic impact on other governmental agencies.
V. Anticipated Economic Impact upon Private Businesses, Individuals, and Consumers.
The Board anticipates setting the nonrefundable trainer license fee at $15.00 which is a minimal cost to applicants. This cost may be passed on to a trainee or apprentice.
VI. Less Costly or Intrusive Methods That Were Considered, but Rejected, and the Reason for Rejection.
The Board considered allowing the trainer license to continue at no cost. However, given the amount of time and resources the Board is required to invest, the reduction of revenues in other areas of the agency, and the trainer/instructor fees required in other professions regulated by the Board, this was not feasible.
