Maine Revised Statutes

§12004-A. Occupational and professional licensing boards

The primary responsibilities of occupational and professional licensing boards include the examination of applicants, issuance of licenses or certificates, registration of licenses and rules of licensees with respect to the practice of a particular occupation or profession. The primary powers of these boards include the authority to hold hearings, adopt rules, establish standards and procedures, issue licenses and initiate action for the revocation or suspension of occupational or professional licenses. [1987, c. 786, §5 (NEW).]

For purposes of any occupational or professional licensing boards which have a public member or members, "public member" means a person who has no financial interest in the profession regulated by the board to which that member has been appointed and who has never been licensed, certified or given a permit in this or any other state for the occupation or profession that member is appointed to regulate. [1991, c. 286, (AMD).]
