Law and Regulation Information
The laws and regulations that enforce consumer protection are the Nevada Revised Statutes, Chapter 643, and Nevada Administrative Code, Chapter 643.
Although the Nevada State Legislature approves the laws and regulations, the Board Members contribute to the democratic process by formally addressing complaints, violation appeals, law and regulation revision reviews, and determining proper disciplinary action for unsafe practices at Board Meetings.
If you are interested in formally addressing the Board to review a law or regulation, appeal a violation, or for any other reason, please complete the Petition to Appear Before the Board form.
The Board is structured within the Administrative Department of the Nevada State Government. The Governor of Nevada appoints members to the Board. Board Members are appointed to serve for a four (4) year term: a member may only serve two (2) full terms.
The Board Members participate in at least four (4) Board Meetings per year. At the Board Meetings, members review complaints, violation appeals, law and regulation revisions, and interact with the public in the democratic process.
The Board Staff oversees and performs the operational functions related to testing, licensing, and inspection services.
The Board delivers consumer protection services through our testing, licensing, and inspection services.
Our Licensing Services help promote consumer protection by informing the public that applicants have proven and demonstrated the knowledge to control infection and disease spread by properly following infection control procedures.
Our Inspection Services perform licensing, infection control, and consumer complaint-based inspections of licensed barbershops to ensure compliance with laws and regulations enacted for consumer protection.
