(c) An orthotic, prosthetic, pedorthic or mastectomy facility must be under the on-site direction of an orthotist, prosthetist, pedorthist or mastectomy fitter licensed by the Board in the discipline for which accreditation is sought.

(d) The rules adopted under this section may not prohibit a licensed individual from practicing in an orthotic, prosthetic, pedorthic and/or mastectomy facility within the scope of the individual's license.
