Exam Re-structure Likely Delayed Until At Least 2015
The BBS is expected to sponsor legislation to delay the exam re-structure until at least 2015. The exam restructure had previously been delayed until January 1, 2014, to accommodate the launch of a new database (BrEZe). Unfortunately, the database continues to experience difficulties and the launch has been delayed yet again. The exam restructure (and accompanying regulations, which take up to one year) cannot be implemented until the database is functional, and that date is still unknown, The BBS will request an extension of at least one year, but no longer than two years, which would give the database adequate time to launch and for new regulations to be promulgated.
