The California Legislature has established 25 California Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) regulatory boards and other additional programs and committees to protect public health and safety through licensing and oversight of various professions.
DCA provides a variety of key administrative services to these semiautonomous boards.
Board members collectively are the leaders of these licensing agencies. Board members make important decisions on agency policies and on disciplinary actions against professionals who violate state consumer protection laws. Board members approve regulations and help guide licensing, enforcement, public education and consumer protection activities.
Some board members are licensed professionals themselves, while many others are public members. The governor appoints many board members, but the Legislature makes appointments as well.
Advisory committees for bureaus of the Department of Consumer Affairs are similar to boards. However, these bureau advisory committees serve in an advisory capacity only, advising the bureau chief and department director.
