The mission of the Division of Professional Regulation (DPR) is to ensure protection of the public’s health, safety and welfare. Our services benefit the citizens of Delaware, professional licensees, license applicants, other state and national agencies, and private organizations.
DPR provides regulatory oversight for 34 boards/commissions comprised of Governor-appointed public and professional members. Oversight activities include administrative, investigative and fiscal support for 54 professions, trades and events with over 200 types of licenses and permits.
License fees fund DPR and the expenditures related to each licensing board.
