Georgia Board of Chiropractic Examiners
The Georgia Board of Chiropractic Examiners is a six-member board appointed by the Governor to protect, promote and preserve the public health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Georgia. The Board is composed of five licensed, practicing chiropractors and one consumer member. The Board reviews applications, licenses qualified applicants and regulates the practice of licensees throughout the state. Complaints are investigated and, if warranted, disciplinary action may be taken by the Board. Board meetings, which are held approximately six times each year, are held at the Secretary of State’s office in Macon and are open to the public. Persons wishing to bring matters for the Board’s consideration should submit a written request to the office.
As of April 1, 2015, individuals who have failed to submit a renewal application and/or submitted an application but failed to submit the supporting documents are no longer eligible for renewal and the license has now lapsed. If your license is now in a lapsed status, you have forfeited any fees previously submitted towards renewal and must now apply for licensure by reinstatement in order to practice in the state of Georgia.
The reinstatement application may be downloaded from the Application/Form Download section of this website.
The Consumer Information and Awareness Act (O.C.G.A. § 43-1-33) was signed into law by Governor Nathan Deal on May 12, 2015. The new statute requires that chiropractors and other licensed health care practitioners provide for certain identification, educational identifiers and signage in the workplace and in advertisements. It also identifies the penalties for intentional violation of the provisions of the law.To review the law and learn more about how this new law may affect your practice, select the following link: Consumer Information Awareness Act.
