Regulation & Licensing Department

About the Department

When visiting a dentist for a cleaning, sitting in the barber’s chair for a trim or trying to read the alphabet chart for an eye exam, you may take for granted the qualifications of professionals providing these services, but the New Mexico Regulation & Licensing Department doesn’t.

The New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department is in the business of ensuring that New Mexicans receive quality care and services from qualified individuals and businesses in 35 different industries, professions and trades. We touch everyday activities of every New Mexican, while ensuring a fair and prompt administrative process to help spur economic development.
