Regulation of Naturopathy

The Naturopathy 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 the practice of naturopathy in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. Naturopaths 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 08.45 and regulations 12 AAC 42 specifically apply to naturopathic doctors. 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 all proposed regulation changes for your program, please send a request in writing with your name, preferred contact method (mail or email), and the program you want to be updated on to:
