Regulation of Hearing Aid Dealers

The Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing staffs the hearing aid dealer program. The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development adopts regulations to carry out laws governing hearing aid dealers in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws.

Applicants must complete an application for licensure, pay application and license fees, and post a surety bond. An Alaska Business License may also be required, please check with the Division.

Initial Applications

Renewal Applications

Renewal applications are available by request for the 2018-2020 licensing period. If you need to renew your license for the 2018-2020 licensing period please contact the licensing examiner using the contact information at the bottom of this page. Please note that renewal applications for the 2020-2022 licensing period will not be available until early September.

Miscellaneous Forms

Division forms may be found in the CBPL Quick links, located in the sidebar to the right.

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 08.55 specifically applies to hearing aid dealers. 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 write to the regulations specialist and request that your name be added to the Hearing Aid Dealers interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish your name removed from the mailing list.

National organizations may provide information on the regulation of hearing aid dealers in other states.
