Board of Physical Therapy & Occupational Therapy

Statutes & Regulations

Alaska Statutes are passed by the Legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the board to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.

AS 08.84 and regulations 12 AAC 54 specifically govern the practice of physical therapy and occupational therapy. AS 08.01 - 08.03 and regulations 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.

Proposed regulations are advertised in Alaska newspapers and we invite public comment on them. If you would like to receive notice of proposed regulations, please write to the regulations specialist, Jun Maiquis at (907) 465-2537, or by email at jun.maiquis@alaska.gov, and request that your name be added to the Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish your name removed from the mailing list.
