Notice - Score Transfer

The Board of Examiners for Hearing Instrument Specialists voted to approve the transfer of out-of-state ILE scores to Missouri. The applicant must request that the score be transferred directly to the Board from the International Hearing Society (IHS). The Application for Licensure is in the process of being updated. If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact the Boards office.

Notice - Purchase Agreement Requirements

The Board continues to review complaints where the purchase agreements do not meet the standards of Section 346.020, RSMo. The Board statutes and rules specifically outline what is required for a licensee to be in compliance with the requirements pertaining to purchase agreements. If a purchase agreement is reviewed and violations are noted, the license of the hearing instrument specialist is subject to discipline. If a licensee is employed by a business or company, the licensee must still ensure that the purchase agreement meets the standards of Section 346.020, RSMo.

The Board suggests that not only should all hearing instrument specialists review Section 346.020 Purchase Agreement Contents but also that all licensees take the time to review 20 CSR 2165-3.030 Medical Clearance and Waivers and the FDA requirements, Section 801.421 Hearing aid devices; conditions for sale. Also, the Board recommends that the warranty dates be included on the purchase agreements. When the practice of fitting hearing instruments is performed, purchase agreements are required and the above statute and rules must be adhered to.
