BCE is a consumer protection agency and their mandate is to protect consumers and hold chiropractors accountable for misconduct. And California’s new Patient’s Right to Know Act amplifies the damage from disciplinary actions.

Chiropractor Criminal Reporting Requirement

California Business and Professions Code §803.5 requires the District Attorney or other prosecuting agency to file a report informing the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners of the filing of any felony criminal charge.

Once a licensee is convicted of a crime, courts are required to transmit a certified copy of the record of conviction to the BCE within 48 hours. When a licensee renews their Chiropractic license, they must report any criminal convictions. While there is no law requiring it, law enforcement agencies often report criminal arrests to the BCE. Depending on the facts, disclosures typically trigger an investigation of the licensee.

Chiropractic license criminal record changes (AB-2138)

Assembly Bill 2138 limits the discretion and chiropractic licensure denial criteria making it easier for prospective licensees with criminal records to obtain and maintain chiropractic licenses effective July 1, 2020.
