Effective July 1, 2013, pursuant to the Governor's Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 2012, the 2013-14 information for the Board of Chiropractic Examiners is merging with the Department of Consumer Affairs Regulatory Boards (Organization Code 1110), which is moving to the new Business, Consumer Services, and Housing Agency.
The Board of Chiropractic Examiners protects California consumers from fraudulent, negligent, or incompetent practice of chiropractic care. The Board ensures that providers are adequately trained and meet recognized standards of performance for treatment and practice. The Board uses licensing, continuing education, and disciplinary procedures to maintain those standards. It also sets educational standards for recognized chiropractic colleges, reviews complaints, and investigates possible violations of the Chiropractic Act and regulations.
