The Division of Professional Licensure ("DPL") is responsible for oversight of 28 boards of registration, as well as the Office of Public Safety and Inspections and the Office of Private Occupational School Education. Collectively, DPL boards and offices license and regulate more than 580,000 individuals, businesses, and schools to engage in over 150 trades and professions in Massachusetts.

The Miscellaneous Health Board Unit ("Unit") is one of DPL's administrative units. The Unit currently oversees and supports the following board of registration: the Board of Registration of Chiropractors; Board of Registration of Dietitians and Nutritionists; Board of Certification of Health Officers; Board of Registration of Sanitarians; and the Board of Registration of Hearing Instrument Specialists. The mission of the Unit, through its respective boards, is to: establish minimum qualifications for individuals seeking licensure in the professions it oversees; to license qualified professionals and businesses that provide services to consumers and businesses; to ensure the integrity of its trades and professions through the fair and consistent enforcement of applicable rules and regulations; and, when necessary, take disciplinary action against licensees who engage in professional misconduct.
