Hard Copy License Certificates Discontinued

The division has expanded our online services to allow licensees to download their own license certificates on demand. As a result, the division no longer mails hardcopy license certificates. The certificates will be located under the “initial application” and “renewal” events in the MY LICENSE account.

If you need guidance on how to set up or access your MY LICENSE account, you can access the MY LICENSE instructions here.

The Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing staffs the audiology and speech-language pathology programs. The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development adopts regulations to carry out laws governing the practice of audiology and speech-language pathology in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws.

Audiologists and speech-language pathologists who practice independently must obtain an Alaska Business License

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.

AS 08.11 and regulations 12 AAC 07 specifically apply to audiologists and speech-language pathologists. AS 08.01 - 08.03 and regulations 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.

Proposed regulations are advertised in Alaska newspapers and we invite public comment on them. If you would like to receive notice of proposed regulations, please email regulationsandpubliccomment@alaska.gov and request that your name be added to the Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish to have your name removed from the mailing list.
