Occupational Licensing Advisory Commission

The Occupational Licensing Advisory Commission is tasked with reviewing Oklahoma’s occupational licenses and making recommendations.

The commission will utilize the Occupational Licensing Blueprint to conduct an analysis of all occupational licenses in Oklahoma. Each year the commission will review a portion of the occupational licenses issued in Oklahoma to make recommendations to the legislature and administrative agencies for reform. These recommendations will be made following a public meeting and vast input from stakeholders. The recommendations for reform will be made each year, prior to the start of the legislative session.

The commission will also compile data to determine all the licenses issued by Oklahoma’s agencies, boards and commissions and update the online database created by the Occupational Licensing Task Force.

History of Licensing Review in Oklahoma

Oklahoma began addressing the issue of occupational licensing by convening an Occupational Licensing Task Force in 2017 per Executive Order by Gov. Mary Fallin. The task force recommended further analysis of licenses by an independent entity utilizing the licensing blueprint to review licensing regulations.

As a result of task force findings, the Oklahoma Legislature enacted Senate Bill 1475, creating an Occupational Licensing Advisory Commission effective July 1, 2018.  This commission is comprised of a broad representation of needed stakeholders including: legislators, industry members, information technology representatives, license holders and others. It is tasked with conducting a review of all occupational licenses and making recommendations to the legislature.
