About Us

The Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency assists and educates consumers regarding the licensing, regulation, and enforcement of professionals and businesses in California.

The Governor's Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 2012 provided for the consolidation of entities that license industries, business activities, and professionals. This consolidation will improve service, consistency and efficiency by facilitating shared administrative functions and expertise in areas such as automated systems, investigative practices, and licensing and legal processes.
