What We Do

Licensure. The Office of Professional and Occupational Regulation ("OPOR"), (formerly known as the Office of Licensing and Registration) maintains approximately 104,000 active licenses in fields ranging from accountancy to veterinary medicine. Requests for assistance from licensees and members of the public are handled through email, telephone calls, letters and on a walk-in basis at our office in Gardiner.

Inspection. OPOR trade inspectors conduct on-site visits to review the work of plumbers, electricians, and installers of oil burner, propane and natural gas appliances. They also assure the safe operation of elevators and boilers, and periodically visit pharmacies, hair and nail salons, funeral establishments and manufactured housing communities. If the service of a licensee is deficient or conditions in a licensed establishment are unacceptable, the inspector usually attempts to obtain voluntary corrections as an alternative to formal sanctions.

Complaints. OPOR investigates complaints filed against licensees. For more information about the complaint process, click here.
