Reference: Database: Disciplinary Records of Licensees Go Online in Utah

From Government Technology:

Researching disciplinary actions taken against doctors and other licensed professionals in Utah just got a lot more convenient.

As part of an overall effort by the Utah Department of Commerce to improve citizen access to information, the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) launched an upgraded database that provides scanned copies of disciplinary and non-disciplinary orders levied on licensees. The online records are accessible back to 2005.

The Utah DOPL licenses and regulates approximately 189,000 Utah professionals, including roughly 9,000 doctors, more than 8,000 engineers and more than 25,000 barbers and cosmetologists, according to a blog from the Workforce Research and Analysis Division of the Utah Department of Workforce Services.

From the Utah Dept. of Workplace Services Blog:

DOPL licenses and regulates approximately 189,000 Utah professionals, including the state’s nearly 9,000 doctors, 8,000-plus engineers and more than 25,000 barbers and cosmetologists.

Before the new search capability was installed at dopl.utah.gov, Bolton said, a concerned patron had to call DOPL on the phone during working hours or scroll through the department’s monthly disciplinary newsletter, which is available on the website.
