Regulation of Behavior Analysts

Notice of Insurance Coverage

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.


Important Notice Regarding Telemedicine:

Following SB74, businesses engaged in the practice of telemedicine are required to register for placement on the Telemedicine Business Registry (TBR) through the Professional Licensing Section. Please click HERE to access the application and additional information regarding the registry. Please note that the application is for businesses rather than individual licensees to register; if you have any questions regarding scope of practice requirements or limitations regarding telemedicine, please contact the program’s Occupational Licensing Examiner.


Important Note:

Effective September 16, 2016, licensure is required for all practicing behavior analysts.
Behavior Analysts may also need to obtain an Alaska Business License, which can be done after receiving a professional behavior analyst 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 08.15 specifically applies to behavior analysts. 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, you must contact the Regulations Specialist, Jun Maiquis at (907) 465-2537, or by email at jun.maiquis@alaska.gov, and request that your name be added to the Behavior Analysts interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish your name removed from the mailing list.
