Licensing and Regulatory Affairs
In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Bureau of Professional Licensing (BPL) has closed its lobbies to visits from the public. These changes are necessary to implement Governor Whitmer’s recommendations regarding social distancing and public gatherings.
In order to implement Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order, BPL staff are in the process of transitioning to working remotely. Please submit all questions to us at BPLHelp@michigan.gov and we will respond as soon as possible.
Also, when given the option by BPL staff, we strongly encourage you to send documents needed for licensure to BPLData@michigan.gov instead of through the U.S. Mail.
For disciplinary matters submit documentation or make inquiries related to disciplinary actions to BPL-Monitoring@michigan.gov.
The Bureau of Professional Licensing (BPL) is responsible for licensing and regulating over 700,000 individuals who are regulated by either the Michigan Occupational Code or the Public Health Code. BPL is also responsible for maintaining the Health Professional Recovery Program (HPRP) and the Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS).
The mission of the Bureau of Professional Licensing is to protect, preserve and improve the health, safety and welfare of Michigan’s citizens through the licensing and regulation of occupational and health professionals. The Bureau is designed to make the regulatory system simple, fair and efficient.
