Collection Agency Licensing and Disciplinary Board

Collection agencies became regulated between 1975 and 1976. The regulatory statute declares it

public policy of the State to eliminate abusive debt collecting practices by licensed collection agencies

and to ensure that those agencies who refrain from using abusive debt collecting practices are not

competitively disadvantaged. Additionally, the State is to protect consumers against debt collection

abuse. The Board is made up of seven members appointed by the Secretary, consisting of five

employed in a collection agency and two public members. The Committee is charged with providing

expert knowledge and advice on disciplinary matters and professional performance and conduct of the

collection agency.
