Welcome to the State of California Acupuncture Board

Audits

The Board may audit, once each year, a random sample of acupuncturists who have reported compliance with the continuing education requirement (C.C.R., Article 8, section 1399.480 — 1399.489.2). No acupuncturist shall be subject to audit more than once every two (2) years. Continuing Education providers must retain, for up to four (4) years, all course attendance, evaluations, and copies of certificates of completion; whereas, licensees, for the same period, must retain copies of their certificates of completion.

Random selection of licensees for audit will be based upon a review of the Certificate of Completion (copy) submitted along with biennial renewals.
