Displaying Your License and Notice of Licensure by the Acupuncture Board

California Business Professions Code Section 4961(b) states:

“An acupuncturist licensee shall post his or her license in a conspicuous location in his or her place of practice at all times. If an acupuncturist has more than one place of practice, he or she shall obtain from the board a duplicate license for each additional location and post the duplicate license at each location.”

If you need to order an duplicate wall license for an additional place of practice, please download the Duplicate License Request Form. You do not need to order additional pocket licenses for duplicate practice locations.

Please note: the Board is unable to issue temporary licenses or authorizations to practice via letter or email. You must be in possession of your wall license in order to practice.

Additionally, as per California Code of Regulations Section 1399.469.3, all licensees must post a notice to each patient of their licensure by the Acupuncture Board. The notice must be posted at each practice location and must contain the following text in at least a 48-point font:

Acupuncturists are licensed and regulated by the California Acupuncture Board
(916) 515-5200
