Welcome to the updated version of the Department's website! We have made several enhancements to both the look and functionality of our site that we think will make it easier for the citizens of Rhode Island to find the help and information they need.
Our mission to protect the public through the regulation and licensing of designated businesses, professions, and occupations while recognizing the need to foster a sound business environment remains the same, but we have refocused our website to better meet your requirements whether it is renewing a license, seeking compliance information, or simply asking a question.
You will see that we have added a new section to better handle the type of transaction that you may want to have with our professionals. We have also streamlined the paths to key information that our regulated communities will want to follow. And overall, we have simply uncluttered the site.
This is only the first step in what we will hope will be a continuously improving site and resource for you. But we will need your input. Please tell us what you like and don't like. Give us your ideas for what you would like to see to make it even more useful.
We look forward to hearing from you and stand by for announcements of new tools we will be adding in the months to come!
