The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development proposes to adopt regulation changes in Title 12, Chapter 02 of the Alaska Administrative Code, dealing with occupational licensing fees related to the Board of Examiners in Optometry.
The public may comment on the proposed regulation changes, including the potential costs to private persons of complying with the proposed changes, by submitting written comments by mail, fax, or e-mail to the division's Regulations Specialist. Public comment due no later than October 27, 2014, at 4:30 p.m.
The Board of Examiners in Optometry is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing. The board consists of four optometrists and one public member. Board members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature.
The board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing the practice of optometry in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. The board meets once a year and offers a public comment period at each meeting. Meeting agendas and minutes are available from the licensing examiner and will be posted to this website once prepared.
Please Note: The licensing process may take up to six weeks after all information is received.
