Indiana Professional Licensing Agency

PLA > ROEC Regulated Occupations Evaluation Committee

 

Indiana’s Regulated Occupations Evaluation Committee (ROEC) was established by the Indiana General Assembly to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of all professional licenses regulated by the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency (IPLA).

IPLA is an umbrella agency for thirty five (35) boards, commissions, and committees, including licensing bodies such as the Medical Licensing Board and the Indiana Real Estate Commission.  IPLA’s boards regulate over seventy (70) professional licenses including physicians, real estate brokers, pharmacists, nurses, accountants, dentists, cosmetologists, veterinarians, and engineers, among many others.  The boards are also responsible for temporary and intern permits related to the respective professions each board regulates.  In addition to professional regulation, some boards are also responsible for regulating businesses including the Indiana Board of Pharmacy, which licenses wholesale drugs distributors, pharmacies, and home medical equipment providers.  From pharmacist interns to journeyman plumbers to limited temporary chiropractor licenses, IPLA and its boards are responsible for the regulation of over 200 unique permits that are required for a person to work in Indiana.  Consequently, IPLA regulates approximately 450,000 actively licensed professionals, meaning almost one (1) in seven (7) working Hoosiers are licensed by the agency.

ROEC’s report on the efficiency and effectiveness of each of these boards, professions, and permit types will be made at least once every seven (7) years and submitted to the Governor, the Health Finance Commission, and the Legislative Services Agency.
