How can we help?

At the end of each calendar year, the director of the Office of Professional Regulation (OPR) prepares an annual report covering the previous fiscal year (July 1–June 30). Each report contains a series of reports from different units within the office, as well as summary of the activity of the regulatory programs for the 45 professions supported and managed by OPR.

Each year, the Office of Professional Regulation (OPR) brings forward an OPR bill to address the practice and regulatory changes for several of the 45 professions connected to the office. The bills can be followed on the legislative tracking page, where you will also find previous professional regulation bills.

From time to time the Office of Professional Regulation (OPR) receives requests from professions seeking regulation. By law, a profession must be regulated only when it is necessary to protect the public. When OPR receives such a request in the form of an application, it does a preliminary assessment on whether or not the profession should be regulated and makes a written recommendation to the legislature. Learn more about the process and view previous Sunrise reports.

Title 3 of the Vermont Statutes and the Office of Professional Regulation (OPR) Administrative Rules apply to all of the professions connected to OPR, in addition to the profession-specific statutes found in Title 26 and linked on each profession’s “Statutes & Rules” page.
