Consumer Protection is Our Mission.
On behalf of the Director of the Division of Professions and Occupations, the Colorado Office of Acupuncture Licensure (“Office”) regulates individual licensed acupuncturists in the state of Colorado. Office activities include licensing acupuncturists, investigating complaints, and enforcing disciplinary actions against those who violate the Acupuncturists Practice Act and the Director’s Rules and Regulations. The mission of the Office is to maintain the profession’s integrity and protect its consumers. The Office works in conjunction with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and the Acupuncture Association of Colorado.
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.
