In New York State, professional misconduct in all the professions (except that by physicians, physician assistants and specialist assistants, which is investigated and prosecuted by the Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC) of the Department of Health) is investigated and prosecuted by the New York State Education Department's Office of the Professions. The Board of Regents, which also has responsibility for licensure in all the professions, is responsible for the final disposition of all disciplinary matters except those handled by OPMC.

Information on uncontested determinations in which a licensee has been assessed a fine for committing an infraction of a minor and technical nature is available by phone: 518-474-3817, ext. 330; fax: 518-473-0578; or e-mail:, or by writing to the Office of the Professions.
