The Board is permitted to issue guidance pursuant to Minnesota Statute, Sec 214.108, which states: A health-related licensing board may offer guidance to current licensees about the application of laws and rules the board is empowered to enforce. This guidance shall not bind any court or other adjudicatory bodies. As implied by this language, guidance documents do not have the force and effect of statutes and rules. They are meant to provide licensees with information about the Boards interpretation and enforcement of statutes and rules. Most of the Boards guidance documents concern the handling of certain types of variance requests or policy reviews.
