Board of Certified Direct-Entry Midwives

Statutes & Regulations

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

AS 08.65 and regulations 12 AAC 14 specifically govern the practice of direct-entry midwifery. 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 the regulations specialist at RegulationsAndPublicComment@Alaska.Gov, and request that your name be added to the Direct-Entry Midwife interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish your name removed from the mailing list.
