F.S. 483.912
483.912 Legislative findings and intent.The sole legislative purpose for enacting this part is to ensure that every genetic counselor practicing in this state meets minimum requirements for safe practice. The Legislature finds that the delivery of genetic counseling services by unskilled and incompetent persons presents a danger to public health and safety. Because it is difficult for the public to make informed choices related to genetic counseling services and since the consequences of uninformed choices can seriously endanger public health and safety, it is the intent of the Legislature to prohibit the delivery of genetic counseling services by persons who possess less than minimum competencies or who otherwise present a danger to the public.
