Consumer Protection is our Mission.
The Office of Boxing and the Boxing Commission are responsible for all rules to regulate the conduct, promotion and performance of boxing, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts in the state. The Office licenses participants, seconds, officials, and promoters. Licensure is mandatory in Colorado. The Office’s activities include licensing, bout approvals, determination of discipline, and enforcement of discipline for those who violate the Colorado Statutes and the Office of Boxing Rules. The purpose of the Office is to protect the safety of participants and promote the public trust and confidence in the conduct of professional boxing, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts by regulating four professions that relate to the operation of live professional events, performances, and contests held in Colorado. The seven-member Commission is comprised of three members that are appointed by the Governor, one member appointed by the Senate President, and one member appointed by the Speaker of the House in addition there are two non-voting members that are licensed physicians who serve as advisors to the commission and the office.
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. Please review the program's Laws, Rules and Policies web page to learn of any changes due to legislation.
