Welcome to the Office of Professional and Occupational Regulation

Dear DPFR Licensees and Interested Parties:

Given the COVID-19 health emergency, social distancing and other precautions in compliance with Maine CDC recommendations, we are restricting access to the Gardiner Annex of the Department of Professional and Financial Regulation to employees and contractors. For the safety of the public, our licensees and our staff, we are requesting that the public and our licensees use our online, email or telephone services to transact business related to the Department including license applications or renewals, filing complaints etc. During this time, we intend to continue to deliver high quality services to our licensees and the general public while focusing on delivering those services remotely.

Thank you for your understanding.

Anne Head, Commissioner.


In response to the rapidly changing health crisis, OPOR has decided for the safety of the public, our licensees and our staff to cancel all scheduled board meetings through April 30.
