Consumer Protection is our Mission.
The Colorado Board of Chiropractic Examiners regulates individual chiropractors. A licensed chiropractor may hold three (3) different authorities -acupuncture, electrotherapy, and animal, in conjunction to their chiropractic license. The Board regulates chiropractic licenses with their designated authorities. The Board meets regularly to approve license applications and enforce the chiropractic rules, regulations, and practice act that governs the profession. The Board reviews complaints about chiropractors and utilizes the Division’s Office of Investigations to investigate complaints when necessary. The Board is authorized to take disciplinary action against those who have violated the Chiropractic Practice Act, Rules, and Regulations.
On March 21, 2013, the Board voted unanimously to permanently repeal the amendment to Rule 7(C) regarding injectables. This amendment became effective on May 15, 2013.
As with all rules, you may sign up for E-mail notification service at www.sos.state.co.us/CCR/EmailSubscription.do to receive E-mail alerts whenever Notices of Rulemaking, Permanent Rules, or Emergency Rules have been published by the Secretary of State in the Colorado Register.
The Division is now called the Division of Professions and Occupations, effective August 8, 2012. To help our consumers and licensees more readily locate and utilize our services, the legislature passed House Bill 12-1055 during the 2012 legislative session. Please note, the Division of Professions and Occupations will still be housed within the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Services the Division currently offers will remain the same.
Legislation passed during the Legislative Session impacts the Division of Professions and Occupations. The Division is developing an implementation process at this time. Please check back in the near future to learn about any changes to rules, requirements and important deadlines.
