Regulation of Behavior Analysts

The behavior analyst licensing program is administered by the Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing. The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development adopts regulations to carry out laws governing behavior analysts in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. This program was enacted by the Alaska State Legislature (HB 361) in 2014 and went into effect on September 16, 2014.

Due to multiple recent vacancies on staff and increased COVID-related workloads, we are currently unable to return calls and emails within our normal processing times. Our primary focus is on reviewing and issuing licenses. If you have applied for licensure, please check the MY LICENSE online portal for real-time updates on the progress of your application. Answers to most other questions can be located using the links on the right-hand side of the page. Thank you for your patience while we attend to these priorities, and we will respond to your inquiry within five business days.

Statutes and Regulations

Alaska Statutes are passed by the legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the department to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.

Licensees are responsible for knowledge of all statutes and regulations pertaining to their profession. AS 08.01-08.03 and 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.
